Henri Laurens, The Guitar, 1919, against a background of Pablo Picasso’s Guitar and Clarinet on a Mantelpiece, 1915, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, New York. It only makes sense that Laurens’ sculpture would be placed in the vicinity of a Picasso painting, considering that not only Picasso was a friend of Laurens’, but he was also a huge influencer on his artistic career, which is evident in Henri’s work as being the sculptural interpretation of Cubism paintings, which Picasso helped establish along with Georges Braque. Not mentioning that both works depict a guitar, you can see how one movement is represented by two different art forms.
