Display caption

In the years after the First World War Braque abandoned the rigid geometry of his earlier Cubism in favour of a more naturalistic, fluid style. His works retained a relatively shallow pictorial space, but were more obviously traditional in subject and composition. With its simple subject, 'Glass and Plate of Apples' may be seen as expressing Braque's profound attachment to homely, everyday objects.
