French artist of Polish origin, Marcoussis had adopted a simplified form of analytical Cubism after meeting Braque and Picasso in 1910. He painted only some 270 oils. More than a half of these originate from his most prolific period between the years 1927 and 1930. Join Assistant Curator (Art) Peter Tuka in discussion of Marcoussis’ painting ‘Still Life in front of a Balcony’ 1928 and learn more about Cubism and its key influences on this artist.
