Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Concert is an oil on canvas still-life painting by Cubist painter Georges Braque, painted in 1937. It measures 28 35 in. (71.12 90.17 cm). In comparison to earlier paintings by Braque, especially those of Analytical Cubism, it contains Surrealist inspired aspects, such as a more colorful palette, and a more representational rendering of the objects. Concert incorporates colors such as green and blue, as opposed to containing strictly neutral tones. However, Concert still incorporates many Cubist elements, such as the play on perspectives, fragmentation, and the inclusion of letters. Braque had an early fascination with still-life subjects for their tactile space, and for the possibilities of contradictory perspectives. However, with the end of Cubism in 1919, and the birth of Dada and Surrealism in the 1920s, contemporary artists became interested in dreams, automatism, and the Freudian Theory of the id, and paintings subsequently included dream or fantasy inspired subject matter.
