《Nature morte au pot blanc et au hareng》
《Still Life with White Jug and Herring》

circa 1922-23 oil, canvas 65.0×54.0cm

A herring and some utensils are pictured lying diagonally on a table that looks as if it had been twisted. They are so distorted that it is not certain what is being depicted. One can, however, sense behind this severe deformity the artist’s feelings of anxiety, hate and obsession.
