Cubism

  1. 1. Group 9
  2. 2. Origin of the Style During the early days of Cubism, the credit of creating Cubism was given to Pablo Picasso, but there were also many other artists during the time. Picasso is the most noted and famous. Starting in 1907, Picasso began creating masterpieces. In 1911 the direction of Cubism shifted to Synthetic Cubism from Analytical Cubism.
  3. 3. Analytical & Synthetic Cubism  Strong lines and shape  Solid geometric figures Analytical Synthetic  Fragments are smaller  Subject is harder to recognize and is less formal
  4. 4. What painting marks the beginning of Cubism? Picasso painted his Les Demoiselles d'Avignon in 1907. This painting was unique enough to set it apart from any other painting and style. The only solution was to make it its own genre and style: Cubism.
  5. 5. The Origin of the Term In order to have a full grasp on where Cubism comes from, you have to understand the feud that went on amongst Picasso and Matisse. Matisse first created a painting titled Blue Nude, which caused controversy and scandal at a Paris art show that showed contemporary French artists and pieces. The art critic Louis Vauxcelles called Matisse and his fans Les Fauves, or the wild animals. This led to the creation of Fauvism and Matisse was the leading artist. Georges Braque and Picasso worked together as artists and are responsible for coming up with the new idea. Picasso painted Demoiselles and took some of Matisse’s younger fans because Picasso had a new radical way of painting. Matisse tried explaining the style to Vauxcelles, saying that it was made of “little cubes”, resulting in the term Cubism.
  6. 6. Picasso’s Cubism  Actual beginning of abstract art  Began in 1907 and ended in 1915  Used patchwork patterns  Also used nudity  Gained inspiration from Matisse, El Greco, Modigliani, Gauguin, and Toulouse-Lautrec  Created own trademark, geometric shapes
