Still Life with a Mandolin Art Print
Picasso spent the summer of 1924 in Juan-les-Pins on the Mediterranean, and the monumental still lifes he created there show the influence of Matisse in their decorative vitality and flat, vivid colours. A fruit dish (resembling a face in profile), a bottle and a mandolin are arranged on a patterned tablecloth, while bushes and cacti are silhouetted against a nocturnal sky. The forms are reduced to distorted yet identifiable shapes, painted in bold, rhythmic style.
