Max Weber

Chinese Restaurant


Max Weber, Chinese Restaurant, 1915. Oil on canvas, 40 × 48 in. (101.6 × 121.9 cm). Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; purchase  31.382
This painting was inspired by a visit to a Chinese restaurant. It was one of many that were opening in New York City in the early twentieth century as a growing number of Asian immigrants settled in the United States. Max Weber captured the lively activity inside the brightly lit restaurant by using fragmented and repeated shapes to represent motion and several different views of the restaurant at the same time. He had learned these modern, Cubist painting techniques in Europe.
