  • Cubism (1907-1914) Krista Arrasmith, Sean Larson, Leah Schrauben
  •  This movement was created by Picasso and Braque in Paris from 1907 to 1914 ◦ Braque and Picasso were the major artists throughout the majority of the Cubist movement ◦ The term Cubism was first coined by Louis Vauxcelles after seeing the landscapes Braque painted at L’Estaque, in 1908, calling the geometric figures in the paintings “cubes.”
  •  Influences on Cubism ◦ Primitivism and Non-Western Sources ◦ Oceanic and Iberian Sculpture ◦ African Art in the case of Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon ◦ Colonialism/Imperialism ◦ World War I ◦ Post-Impressionism: Cézanne ◦ Science-Bohr, Einstein
  • Les Demoiselles d’Avigon (Picasso, 1907)
  •  Overall Characteristics ◦ Reject that art should copy nature ◦ Reject use of traditional techniques ◦ Emphasize two-dimensionality (geometricity) ◦ Reduce objects to geometric shapes and put these within a shallow space ◦ Multiple/contrasting vantage points ◦ Overlapping planes (passage) ◦ Exploration of the fourth dimension (simultaneity)
  •  Cubism consisted of two stages ◦ Analytical- Very abstract; mostly made up of overlapping planes and geometrical figures ◦ Synthetic- tended to use new mediums, such as clips from newspaper, on top of paint canvass; took away all three dimensional aspects left from Analytical
  • Analytical Cubism (1907-1912)
  •  Style ◦ Mostly landscapes, few figures (simple subjects) ◦ Noticeable lack of color ◦ Earth tones ◦ Colors or tones with neutral associations
