Still Life with a Guitar  1913

by Juan Gris

Despite the apparent flatness of the composition, it suggests depth with bold colors and sudden changes in perspective. Gris painted this picture in Céret, a small town in the Pyrenees popular with artists, most notably Picasso, who spent the summer of 1911 and parts of 1912 and 1913 there.
