Still life with checkered tablecloth

The original work is dated 1915 and since February 2016 it has been the property of a private collector who has won the painting at a Christie's auction for a very high price. In this work Gris represents different subjects that we can find in our daily life: a bunch of grapes, a newspaper, a checkered tablecloth. The elements "recognizable" in the painting are very few, in full cubist style: the artist decomposes the objects and makes many fragments of them, even overlapping each other.

The original work is dated 1915 and since February 2016 it has been the property of a private collector who has won the painting at a Christie's auction for a very high price. Juan Gris is a pioneer of Cubism, at first analytical and then synthetic, and a friend of artists such as Matisse, Picasso and Braque. The term "cubism" comes from a critical judgment by Matisse, who looks at a work by Braque and states: "But this picture is made of cubes". In this work Gris represents different subjects that we can find in our daily life: a bunch of grapes, a newspaper, a checkered tablecloth. The elements "recognizable" in the painting are very few, in full cubist style: the artist decomposes the objects and makes many fragments of them, even overlapping each other. The colours used are harmonious, bright and intense. Unlike Picasso who has a very formal vision of cubism, Gris introduces colour into his works; moreover, he is an elegant, delicate painter with a strong expressive charge. Despite the deep friendship between the two, the most mischievous critics argues that their relationships are not so idyllic, but on the contrary, they are in competition. They write: "it is a formal friendship, but there is no association on artistic research."
