Felix Nussbaum's Armchair Still Life is a work of art that captivates with its artistic style and composition. This painting is an example of the artistic movement known as Expressionism, which is characterized by the representation of emotions and feelings through painting.

The composition of this work is very interesting, since the artist has managed to create a sensation of depth and perspective through the arrangement of the objects in the scene. The armchair, which is the main element of the painting, is in the center of the composition and is surrounded by a series of everyday objects such as a bottle, a glass and a cup of tea.

Color is another outstanding aspect of this work. Nussbaum has used a dark and somber color palette to create a melancholic and sad atmosphere. Gray and brown tones predominate in the painting, reflecting the artist's state of mind at the time of its creation.

The story behind this painting is also very interesting. Felix Nussbaum was a Jewish artist who lived in Germany during World War II. In 1944, he was deported to Auschwitz and killed in a gas chamber. The Armchair Still Life was one of the last works that Nussbaum created before her deportation and is considered one of her most important works.

In addition, there is a little known aspect about this painting, which is its relationship with the work of Vincent Van Gogh. Nussbaum was a great fan of Van Gogh and was inspired by his work to create this painting. In fact, the armchair that appears in the painting is a replica of the one that Van Gogh used in his studio in Arles.
