  • ABSTRACT ART

    CUBISM- Cubism, an abstract movement in art, developed in the early 1900's.

    It is based on the theory that objects should be captured by showing multiple points of view simultaneously.

    Forms are simplified and broken apart into planes, then reassembled in an abstract form emphasizing geometric shapes. The planes are sometimes tilted by means of shading.

  • Pablo Picasso (1881-1973): Pablo Picasso was born in 1881 in

    a small town in southern Spain

    His father was a painter who taught art

    Picasso didnt believe that his teachers at the Royal Academy were teaching him the right way, so he made art his own way.

    Picasso created more than 20,000 works of art in his lifetime. In 1913, at The Armory Show in NY he introduced the new style of cubism. Picasso's "Girl with a

    Mandolin"

  • Picasso-Les Demoiselles D'Avignon, 1907, oil on canvas, 234 cm W x 244 cm H, Museum of Modern Art, New York.

    Considered the first cubist artwork,

    The painting depicts five naked prostitutes in a brothel

    Their figures are composed of flat planes rather than rounded volumes, their eyes are lopsided, and the two women at the right have masks for heads.

    The space, which should recede, comes forward in jagged shards, like broken glass. In the still life at the bottom, a piece of melon slices the air like a scythe.

  • Guernica 1937, oil on canvas, 7.77 m W x 3.5 m H, Prado Museum, Madrid.

    symbolic painting of the horrors of war

    On April 27th, 1937, unprecedented atrocities are perpetrated against the civilian population of a little village in northern Spain. Chosen for bombing practice by Hitler's war machine, the hamlet is pounded with high-explosive bombs for over three hours. Townspeople are cut down as they run from the crumbling buildings. Sixteen hundred civilians are killed or wounded.

    4. Color the main object (your still life)

    5. Color the background in lighter colors and outline some shapes in black or another dark color.
