The Bowl of Grapes
With this “Grape Bowl” Georges Braque opened a new phase of his art.

Indeed, there are elements of his works' original cubism, but the palette is already entirely different from that of “The Clarinet” where only the browns existed.

Here they are only a reminiscence intended to better enhance the pedestal table on which the bowl is placed. Brown gradients are now replaced by a rich range of grey, but also greens.

On the other hand, the use of sand has maintained a prominent place in the processing of the material.

As far as fruit is concerned, Braque returns to realism, going so far as drawing the branch of the vine and the tails of apples.

Grapes and apples are... standard!

The white bowl is laid on a white tablecloth with which it makes body.

This alliance gives birth to a cubic character whose head is represented by the bowl while the apples rest in his arm's hollow.
