Violin and Pitcher (1910) The move towards [a] more complex kind of painting reaches a climax in the still lifes that Braque painted late in 1909 and early the follwing year, for example ‘Violin and Pitcher’. These paintings give the sensation that Braque has felt his way visually around each object and examined its relationships with the other objects around it from several viewpoints.
Georges Braque - Violin and Palette (1909). A cubist painting. Cubist painting abandoned the tradition of perspective drawing and displayed many views of a subject at one time. Expressionism is displayed because Violin and Palette is able to communicate a certain feeling and mood. The formal elements like colour and line are dark and rigid making the mood more stern and cold. The dark colours bring a cool feeling to the viewer, therefore this artwork displays expressionism.
