After the war, the series dedicated to billiard tables led Braque to recover the cubist visual space and the puzzles of its geometric transformations in homothetic style. The absence of people in these works is mitigated by the representation of myriad partial views of the felt by a player and by the representation of the irrational forces that move billiard balls.
