Georges Braque and the Cubist Still Life, 19281945 brings together for the first time in 80 years the Braque paintings known as the Rosenberg Quartet (192829). Used as models for marble panels in the Paris apartment of Braque’s art dealer Paul Rosenberg, the four canvases reveal aspects of Braques process; all were in his studio at the same time at various stages of completion, as he reworked them over several years. Other paintings show Braques interest in conveying the physicality of objects and surrounding space. In The Pink Tablecloth (1933) and Fruit, Glass, and Mandolin (1938), Braque added powdered quartz and sand to a white ground to evoke intricate textures.
