The Billiard Table

Georges Braque French

Not on view

The folding perspective and arrangement of objects around the table are the result of a slow and methodical process by which Braque related the space of the room to the flat surface of the picture. Braque began the series of seven billiard tables in September 1944. Together with the eight pictures of the Studio series, they represent the artist's largest and final major works.
