Juan Gris, Breakfast, 1914 (cut and pasted papers, crayon, and oil on canvas, 31 7/8 x 23 1/2 inches; Museum of Modern Art, NYC). Clement Greenberg wrote that this collage succeeds better than Gris' more "decorative" collages, because it obviously depicts a still life: "with one's eyes focused primaraly on the flat surface pattern, one finds the picture disorganized and congested, but when one shifts focus and views it as a conventional picture, it springs instantly into perfection."

    So funny. Amongst other things, his mouth is a circle around the words "Je suis ... général" which you can interpret as: "I'm [the] commanding officer"!
