Cubism Cubism Presentation Transcript

  • Cubism
    By: Michelle Friedow, Rachel Sandoffsky, and Melanie Holsgrove
    “When we discovered Cubism, we did not have the aim of discovering Cubism. We only wanted to express what was in us.”

    railroad car at the automobile windshield,
    in combination with speed, has altered

    and denies who stirs other
    men to think for themselves.
    That is the chief value of the

    take careful inventory of our
    stock of stereotyped
