Reginald Gammon, Cubist Still Life
TitleCubist Still Life
Credit LineMuseum purchase, 2004
Dimensions5 ¾ x 8 7/8 in.
Gammon is best known for his figural work that explores many dimensions of human social experience, but he began experimenting with Cubism in 1948, returning periodically to abstraction throughout his career. In many ways this work resembles Pablo Picasso’s early forays into cubist abstraction: breaking down dimensional objects into flattened planes, compressing natural space, and conflating perspectives. Traditional in subject matter—a still life—Cubism was revolutionary in its methods of representation.
