Light slips through a venetian blind, casting a shadow from the wine glass onto the small table. The illusionistic appearance of the painted blind contrasts with the real newspaper, which Gris incorporated into the work. 'Le Socialiste des Pyrénées-Orientales' was local to Collioure, a fishing town where he stayed in the summer of 1914. Gris may have included it to express his political allegiances. As this painting indicates, he was generally more concerned than Braque or Picasso with preserving the appearance of reality in his Cubist works.
