In The Painter's Window, Gris collected some of his favorite motives: the palette, guitar, pipe, fruit, and playing cards. These symbols of the senses appear before an open window. But instead of the opening unveiling a tempting, sought-after world, it simply juxtaposes the other side of the interior-exterior relationship.
