The Open Window 1921
Gris, Juan, 1887-1927
Cubism gives importance to tell realit as it itself. Cubist artists use some metarials from the nature in their tables such as peace of sheets, newspapers, matchsticks. They prefer to use these materials both to show they are not far from the reality and to tell the painting is not something extraordinary. In other words people can use some staff from the nature to compose their paintings. In this table, it is possible to observe an open window and a table in front of it. The table is not visible because of staffs on it. A bottle, a violin and some sheets may be that is written notes to play violin. On the other hand the art of cubism does not involve staff with their whole. For instance, there is a head of bottle, the body of violin in this painting as by force of cubism.
