Theiere et Raisins

Theiere et Raisins, 1950 is an original color etching and aquatint by Georges Braque. Signed and annotated “Epreuve d’Artiste” in brown crayon  in the lower left margin aside from the edition of 200. Vallier 1022.

In this exquisite still life, Braque replaces the cubist formality of his early compositions with an organic quality that would come to characterize his later works. Braque provides a distinct foreground and background, including the table upon which the fruit rests as part of the overall composition, and offers the viewer a raised vantage point, as though the viewer is gazing down at the teapot and grape. The surface of the table is intriguing as it suggests a painterly quality and is streaked with an array of colors in varied hues, providing a further contrast to the solid coloring and graceful lines used to convey the teapot and grape.
