CUBISM
  • Cubism was an art movement in France that lasted from 1908 to 1918 and beyond.
  • It was started by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.

CUBISM
  • At the beginning of the 20th century, Braque and Picasso were not interested in showing traditional realism—illusionism—by using realistic perspective as had been done in the past.

  • Braque and Picasso were influenced by Paul Cezanne,

who simplified natural forms into spheres, cylinders, cubes, and cones . . .

  • They were also influenced by the recent importation to Europe of African masks.

  • Cubists wanted to show objects as geometric shapes (like Cezanne),

  • Can you see the influence of African masks in Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon?

CUBISM
  • Cubism developed and changed over time: the first phase was Analytic Cubism. It is sometimes called ‘Facet Cubism’ because the subject and surrounding space is broken into facets, or pieces of separate surfaces (like a cut diamond).

  • Ambroise Vollard, painted in 1910 by Pablo Picasso, is an example of Analytic Cubism.

Do you see the facets?

  • While Analytic Cubism took forms apart, the next phase of Cubism—Synthetic Cubism—put forms together using collage and assemblage, which created questions about what’s illusion and what’s real.

  • Picasso, Braque, and others continued to explore the ideas of Cubism. Synthetic Cubism included the addition of stenciling and lettering, and used vibrant colors, instead of the dark, limited color palette of Analytic Cubism.
