From The Cleveland Museum of Art:
By 1911, Picasso's Cubist paintings began to approach total abstraction. This still life depicts a corked bottle, a wine glass, a folded newspaper, a knife, and a fork on a table. Always wanting to remain connected to the real world, Picasso began inserting fragmentary words and numbers with personal and political meanings. The fe 20 may refer to Café 20, a favorite meeting place for artists. EAN above [P]ARIS may allude to the anarchist newspaper L'Intransigeant.
