John Golding, "Cubism: A History and an Analysis 1907-1914":
"The objects in Braque's painting...'Still Life with Fruit Dish'...are more roughly faceted [than Picasso's contemporary work], and the whole surface is broken up in terms of the same angular but subtly modulated planes which carry the eye back into a limited depth and then forward again on to the picture plane in a series of gentle declivities and projections. In the work of both painters one becomes increasingly aware that they are making use of a variable viewpoint."
