Still Life: "2ᵉ étude"

Georges Braque French

Not on view

Although the word “CAFÉ” appears at right, this arrangement, like so many others by Braque and Picasso, was painted in the artist’s studio. At left, an area of faux marbre (imitation marble) indicates the material of the tabletop on which the items are arranged. A folded newspaper, “[Le Qu]otidi[en du] MIDI,” is tucked between a mandolin at left and a bottle, white clay pipe, and stemmed glass at right. Additional musical references can be found at lower right with the words “solo violin” and “2eme étude” (Second Study).
