Several of Caulfield’s paintings from 1963 and 1964 make direct reference to ideas found in the carefully constructed still lifes of the Cubist painter Juan Gris. During this period Caulfield started to introduce exotic objects into his paintings. An art critic once described them as combining ‘decorative opulence with technical austerity’. The dagger and sheath in this image were drawn from life in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
