The work is dated 1916 and it is exhibited at the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, Spain. The author of this painting is Juan Gris, the stage name of José Victoriano González, a Cubist Spanish painter. In 1906 he moves to Paris, where he gets to know and takes inspiration from important artists: Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Fernand Léger, Amedeo Modigliani and his compatriot Pablo Picasso, with whom he makes a deep friendship. At first, the style of Gris approaches analytic cubism: colours typical of analytical cubism are ochre and grey, used to give an idea of ​​volume. Starting from 1915 his painting undergoes a transformation: it starts the phase of synthetic cubism of the artist, who begins to focus on bright colours, unlike the colleagues Braque and Picasso, whose works are monochromatic. In this painting Gris portrays Josette, his life partner, but also muse and model. The woman, sitting on a chair placed against a wall covered with wood at its bottom, holds her hands on her knees. The composition combines the influence of Corot given its pyramidal structure and that of Cézanne for the pose of the female figure. Using the technique of collage, the artist superimposes several elements, without giving them a precise narrative purpose: the subjects, without importance, are repeated several times. The objects in the canvas do not correspond to reality, the artist makes them concrete them in the painting, but only their formal concept remains. Gris's paintings are currently worth a fortune: in 2010 one of his works was sold for twenty-eight million dollars.
