This still life painting captures three apples sat on some leaves or vegetables on a pretty bowl in the centre of the composition. There is a small glass next to it, which is left relatively unfilled, mainly as an outline which makes it harder to spot initially. There are also cloths which hang over the edges of the table, but most of this area is produced from tones of grey and white, making the more colourful fruit really grab your attention. The artist has casually signed the painting in the right hand side, almost half way up the side of the canvas. In the background we see a patterned wall and some other areas which are left pretty simple.

Braque was a true master of still life painting and managed to capture these types of scenes in a variety of styles across his career. That said, the majority of his work within the Fauvist movement was in landscape and cityscape art, as shown with the likes of Landscape at La Ciotat and L'Estaque. He did, however, amend his abtract work within cubism quite a lot over the years and this has given us a variety of different still life paintings from around 1909/1910 onwards. Sometimes he would be working closely with Pablo Picasso, but at other points he would collaborate with others, or work by himself, and this ensured a number of different approaches over a period of several decades, though they were all very much in the general style of modern art.

The Tate itself holds one of the finest collections within the UK and spreads it out across a number of different galleries, some in London, and some elsewhere. Related artists to Braque will generally be found at the Tate Modern, where the likes of Matisse and Monet can also be enjoyed as part of the permanent collection, whilst a number of high profile exhibitions are also regularly hosted here.
