Tristram Hillier

La Confiserie [Confectionery]

About this artwork

This work shows the strong influence of André Lhote who taught Hillier in Paris. It displays a tipped-up perspective and decorative treatment of form and pattern, which was typical of Cubist artists, such as Georges Braque, earlier in the century. Still-life as a subject matter was also a favourite of the Cubists, allowing ample opportunity to analyze objects and manipulate surface planes.
