Mandolin, Fruit Bowl, and Plaster Arm

Pablo Picasso Spanish

Not on view

Like Still Life with Mandolin and Galette (MMA 1999.363.65) , this monumental still life was painted for exhibition at the fashionable Paul Rosenberg gallery in Paris. The large scale and muted colors of this work and others like it were admired by the same collectors who patronized modern architects such as Le Corbusier and furniture makers such as Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann, who adapted aspects of Cubism in their own work.
