Cubism 3

Intentions and Interpretations


Cubism 3

The Cubism of Picasso, Braque and Gris had more than a technical or formal significance, and the distinct attitudes and intentions of the Salon Cubists produced different kinds of Cubism, rather than a derivative of their work.

Aimed at a large public, these works stressed the use of multiple perspective and complex planar faceting for expressive effect while preserving the eloquence of subjects endowed with literary and philosophical connotations.

The Salon Cubists tended to follow the Picasso-Braque Early Cubism style through their exposure to this period of the two artists' work (1908 to 1910). They participated in public exhibitions (salons) as opposed to private galleries, such as the Salon d'Automne (the Autumn Salon) and the Salon des Indépendants (which occured in the spring salon).

The Salon Cubists used the faceted treatment of solid and space and effects of multiple viewpoints to convey a physical and psychological sense of the fluidity of consciousness, blurring the distinctions between past, present and future.

With simultaneity, the concept of separate spatial and temporal dimensions was comprehensively challenged. The subject was no longer considered from a specific point of view at a moment in time, but built following a selection of successive viewpoints, i.e., as if viewed simultaneously from numerous angles (and in four-dimensions) with the eye free to roam from one to the other.

This technique of representing simultaneity, multiple viewpoints (or relative motion) is pushed to a high degree of complexity inGleizes' monumental Le Dépiquage des Moissons (Harvest Threshing). These ambitious works are some of the largest paintings in the history of Cubism. Léger’s The Weddinggave form to the notion of simultaneity by presenting different motifs as occurring within a single temporal frame, where responses to the past and present interpenetrate with collective force.
