Transcript of Cubism in Art

Cubismc.1907-c. 1914Stages of Cubism Analytic Cubism (190811) Synthetic Cubism (191224)Analytic Cubism: Objects are shown from many viewpoints at once so that solid forms are shattered. They become fractured, geometric shapes compressed into a sliver of space and flattened against the canvas. Space is treated as if it were a solid, tangible mass. Confusion is enhanced because colour is removed and everything is painted in browns and greys with a few fragmented black outlines. Addition of stenciled text towards the end of Analytic Cubism.Synthetic Cubism: Was developed c.1912 Colour was re-introduced with two technical innovations called papier coll and collage. Papier coll involves sticking coloured paper onto the canvas and was invented by Braque. Collage was subsequently developed by Picasso and involved including all kinds of material such as newspaper or fabric in the painting. Both techniques bridged the gap between art and life by sticking bits of the real world onto the canvas. They also drew attention to the fact that a painting it is a flat object and blurred the line between painting and sculpture.

Braques work was too personal for any category. Picasso moves into a more surreal phase through his Three Dancers painting.
