Fruit Dish on a Checkered Tablecloth - Gris

We just learned about the famous work of art Houses at L'Estaque by French painter Georges Braque.

Another famous work of art is the painting Houses at Fruit Dish on a Checkered Tablecloth by Spanish painter Juan Gris in 1917.

Juan Gris's painting is a part of the Cubism style of Abstract Art, where the painter liked to use lines and triangles to try to show a different side of a picture, making it look very strange, but still very interesting.
