ROGER DE LA FRESNAYE, MAR­RIED LIFE (1912)

The Simple Things - - THINK -

Roger de la Fresnaye was the aris­to­cratic son of a French army of­fi­cer, who moved in Cu­bist art cir­cles (or should that be squares?). This scene of mar­ried life per­haps doesn’t ex­press a fe­male view of mat­ri­mony, but de­tails such as the books piled on their ta­ble in­tro­duce a sense of hu­man­ity into a very mod­ern im­age. © Min­ne­ap­o­lis In­sti­tute of Art, The John R Van Der­lip Fund and Thames & Hud­son
