An archival premium Quality art Print of Checkerboard and Playing Cards by Juan Gris for sale by Brandywine General Store. A typical Cubist table top arrangement that includes the checker board and cards in the title as well as a pipe, wine glasses and a Le Journal newspaper. These are familiar objects but are presented in an uncommon way. The painting acts both as a paradigm of Cubist achievement and a personal statement by Gris. With his combination of games of strategy and chance with the fleeting pleasures of wine and tobacco, Gris presents a lugubrious reflection on life. The artist finished this oil on canvas in the year 1915. The size of the original cubist artwork is 26 by 36 inches and now hangs in the National Gallery of Australia Famous artists print #194
