Vladimir Weisberg
1924-1985
STILL LIFE WITH MULTIPLE OBJECTS
signed in Cyrillic and dated '70' t.r.
oil on canvas

The present lot is a striking example of Weisberg's so-called 'white on white' style, the purist aesthetic which the artist developed over the course of the 1960s. Typical of his still lifes from the period, the elevated viewpoint accentuates the flatness of the composition and contributes to the deformation of geometrical objects, whose contours and volumes seem to dematerialise and dissolve.
