Descripción

This drawing comes from the second half of the 1920s, a period during which Hernando Viñes experimented with Cubism. It is a still life composed of long and incisive charcoal lines representing a vase and a guitar. The instrument’s curves are echoed in the sinuosity of the vase and the creases in the cloth, while the slightly inclined straight lines of the guitar’s neck establish an oblique rhythm within the composition. Viñes was able to generate a balance between straight lines and angles, and the softness of the curves through spontaneous and diffuse shading that tempers the intensity of each line.

Through his uncle, Ricardo Viñes, a renowned pianist and a great interpreter of Erik Satie, Hernando Viñes was had access Parisian intellectual and musical circles where he discovered a passion for music and learned how to play flamenco guitar. In this and other works from the same period he reproduced the crescendos and diminuendos of musical interpretation.
