Fun Fact

This print was published by Georges Braque's dealer as a means of promoting the artist's avant-garde style.

Description

Georges Braque worked closely with Pablo Picasso to develop Cubism around the time this print was made. Their work became virtually indistinguishable from each other as they reduced identifiable subject matter to geometric abstraction. Here, Braque presented a still-life featuring a playing card and a bottle of gin. Although Picasso worked extensively in printmaking, Braque made fewer than ten Cubist prints.
