Mid-20th-Century Cubist School, Still Life With Guitar

Mid-20th-Century Cubist School, Still Life With Guitar

An interesting mid-20th-century cubist still life depicting a guitar by Czech artist, H J Goschala (b. 1945).

The Cubist movement was revolutionary in its approach. Artists Pablo Picasso and George Braque sought to convey more about a subject by bringing several views together in the same image. By doing so, they reflect the reality that we rarely see an object from one set angle as our perspectives continually change.

Part of the fun of cubism is trying to figure out the subject in question and it’s not always a straightforward task. What do you see in this particular piece? Is it simply a guitar or could it also be a figure?

The painted is held within a vintage frame and signed/dated in the lower left.
