I Spy: Looking Closely at Still Life with Bottles and Glasses

Still Life with Bottles and Glasses
Georges Braque
Oil on canvas
31.75 cm × 44.77 cm

Let's look closely at this painting by Georges Braque!

Four questions to consider: 

  1. Is this painting a landscape, portrait, or still life (hint: look at the title)?
  2. Can you discern the bottle and glasses mentioned in the title of the painting? What other items do you see in the painting? 
  3. How would you describe the shapes and lines in the painting? Why do you think this style of art is called "Cubism?"
  4. How would you describe the color palette? 

Once you have looked closely, visit the painting online at the Dallas Museum of Art to learn more!
