"Violin and Pitcher"
Artist: Georges Braque
Date: 1910
Medium: Oil on Canvas

           This piece is an example of analytical cubism.  This piece shows a different way of portraying an object.  it does not follow traditional views of the subject matter, instead, it shows an object from multiples angles and dimensions. The use of geometric shapes to interpret the object from multiple views in the mind's eye could be a way of describing this painting.  I'm not the biggest fan of this type of art but I do have a sense of appreciation for it.  I prefer more colorful displays of art but the shading and the depth depicted in this piece are exquisite. Honestly, when looking at the picture as a whole, I can sort-of make out the violin and a little of the pitcher, but I think that it was the artist's goal to make the view look twice at this piece.
