Title:  Still Life BACH
Artist:  Braque, Georges [French, 1882-1963]
Year:  1912
Material:  Pasted paper and charcoal on paper
Where:  Kunstmuseum Basel
Notes:  Christine Poggi, 'In Defiance of Painting':
In papiers colles such as Still Life BACH of 1912, the colored woodgrain wallpaper, limited to a few simple fragments, opposes the comparatively more ethereal, fading lines of charcoal drawing. One can still detect the remnants of traditional perspectival diminution and modeling in the scaffolding of charcoal drawing, but the Renaissance system of representation now appears in a state of disarray. Arbitrarily fragmented contours and contradictory areas of modeling no longer form a coherent or rationalized view of nature.
