Transcript of Cubism-Cosme 03

Cubism was invented around 1907 in Paris by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. Cubism was the first abstract style of modern art. A Cubist painting mostly ignores the traditions of perspective drawing and shows you many views of a subject at one time. The Cubists introduced collage into painting. Cubism influenced many other styles of modern art including Orphism, Futurism, Vorticism, Suprematism, Constructivism and Expressionism.

Analytic CubismAnalytic cubists analyzed natural forms and reduced the forms into basic geometric parts on the two-dimensional picture plane. Colour was almost non-existent except for the use of a monochromatic scheme. Instead of an emphasis on colour, Analytic cubists focused on forms like the cylinder, sphere and the cone to represent the natural world.Portrait of Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler, 1910

Synthetic CubismSynthetic cubism is characterized by the introduction of different textures, surfaces, collage elements, and a large variety of merged subject matter. It was the beginning of collage materials being introduced as an important ingredient of fine art work.
