The present work displays several of the primary concerns of Cubism to striking effect. The choice of subject-matter, collage still life, was of abiding interest to artists such as Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso who pioneered the movement, since still life objects served as useful vehicles for the effective fragmentation of form. The striking distortion of perspective within Le Monogramme acts as an intriguing visual challenge for the viewer, whilst the inclusion of scraps of words within the composition adds another element of complexity to the scene. The result reveals Blanchard’s total mastery of the Cubist form.
