Max Weber

Fruit and Wine

Weber’s figural paintings and still-lifes received significant critical attention after a retrospective at Paul Rosenberg Galleries in 1944. His earlier modernist paintings had given him an honored position in American art history, and his new expressive style, exploring the spiritual and emotional potential of paint, seemed to link him with a younger generation. Weber’s recent work in the Rosenberg exhibition included a number of tabletop still-lifes, like Fruit and Wine. The subject harkens back to Weber’s early career as a Cubist and the prevalence of such still-lifes in his work, as well as in that of his colleagues Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. Weber may have been in a reflective mood as his career entered a new phase, and his importance in American art was reasserted.
