Cubism

  1. 1. Cubism is an early-20th-century avant-garde art movementthat revolutionized European painting and sculpture, andinspired related movementsin music, literature and architecture.Pablo Picasso is one of the artists whopioneered this movement.There are Three periods of Cubism:Early Cubism (1908-1910)Analytic Cubism (1910-12)Synthetic Cubism (1912-1914)
  2. 2. Early Cubism: depiction of thewhole structure of the object andits position in space, combiningdifferent viewpoints. The Vase, Bowl, Lemon, Picasso 1907
  3. 3. Analytical Cubism: breaking down ofthe subject and the space around it intoangular planes or facets that recorddifferent viewpoints and information;no interest in colour or texture Clarinet and Bottle of Rum on a mantelpiece, Braque 1911
  4. 4. Synthetic Cubism: collages ofinterlocked fragments ofnewspaper, wallpaper, and labelswith fragments of painting,drawing and writing; colourreintroduced & texture & pattern Bottle, Glass, Guitar and newspaper, Picasso 1913
  5. 5. Originated by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque paintingsEmphasizes flat, two-dimensional surfaceCubism rejects perspective, chiaroscuro(The treatment of light and shade in drawing and painting) It Contains Geometric forms without realistic detail.Refutes art as the imitation of nature
  6. 6.  Flat colour – no illusion of 3D by using shading or tonal modelling Objects painted from different angles. Complex interlocking shapes create feelings of tension & anxiety in viewer Vertical or diagonal plane lines disrupt the composition Details are edited out = simplify, select & modify from nature
  7. 7. Characteristics of Cubism: Abstract Broken Mirror Effect Rearranged Geometric More than one view Simplified Shapes
  8. 8. Abstract: does not look like real life
  9. 9. Broken mirror effect: Three MusiciansBraque:Houses at La Estaque 1909 Ambroise Vollard by Braque
  10. 10. Rearranged: AcrobatPortrait of Marie-Thérèse
  11. 11. Geometric shapes:Jacqueline with Crossed Hands Girl with a Boat
  12. 12. More than one view: Nusch Éluard Marie-Therese Walter
  13. 13. Simplified shapes: Harlequin
  14. 14. Getting as close to reality as possible byrepresenting a real, natural object on a flat canvasby showing every side of the object.Taking each point of view and emphasizing thegeometric shapes by spreading all of these pointsout on a canvas.Unfolding an image.As Cubism developed, Picasso began to combineseveral points of view of an object and to overlapthem ᾶ this led to some images becoming almostunrecognizable.
  15. 15. Why Cubism: To reject traditional perspectiveand exploreideas of time and space—show portraits, stilllife,and landscape from several angles at once;explore boundaries of illusion and what’s realHow Cubism: By breaking up the picture planeintofacets, using geometric shapes, adding lettering,constructing collage and assemblage
