The Tree (L’Arbre)

By Henri le Fauconnier

The Tree (L’Arbre)
The Tree (L’Arbre) The Tree (L’Arbre)

A realistically-painted landscape, with at the centre a white cottage with a red roof. Around it, the artist has added abstract elements. These large, green areas, which form a kind of tree with round shapes in grey and white on both sides, are integrated into the landscape. The green tree is cut out of the centre, providing a view through to the landscape behind it. The combination of the abstract with the figurative lends the composition variety and dynamism. Le Faucconier earned a great deal of success with this painting. It is a measured form of the Cubism introduced by Picasso and Braque in Paris. It was this combination of figuration and Cubism that became very popular in the Netherlands.
