History of the Still life with bottle, salt and ewer by Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso - Still life with bottle, salt and ewer

Pablo Picasso
"Still life with bottle, salt and ewer"

The painting that most held our attention on this visit was Still life with Bottle, Sole and Ewer. It is thought to be the first work that Picasso created in the studio at Chateau Grimaldi. What makes it striking is the material it is painted on: Picasso used a panel of fibre cement, leaving some of the areas of cement unpainted. The material – matt and slightly grainy – seems to echo the colour and texture of the earthenware ewer and the tablecloth.

A strictly geometric composition, with the sole in its wicker basket being its central motif, it consists simply of the tablecloth, a bottle, the fish in the basket, a lemon and the ewer which he had found at a second-hand shop in Golfe-Juan. It’s a painting that has a simple beauty, with its shades of grey, ochre and white. Via
