This oil on canvas is a typical Cubist still life with the artist showing his admiration of the movement’s founders, Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso. Soft colors are juxtaposed with strong geometric shapes creating a dynamic composition. Still Life with a Pitcher and Glass comes framed, ready to hang. Uniquely, the frame accentuates the geometric nature of this painting and is also representative of the symbiotic relationship between the artist and his framer.
In affiliation with the Renssen Gallery in Amsterdam, Erik Renssen is an admirer of and inspired by Pablo Picasso.
