7 CUBISM & PICASSO influenced and guided by their own understanding of Cézanne PAUL CÉZANNE ( ) 'Bibemus Quarry', 1895 (oil on canvas

8 CUBISM & PICASSO "Every thing in nature takes it's form from the sphere, cone or cylindar." - Paul Cezanne

9 CUBISM & PICASSO Cezanne’s quote basis of painting for seven years. Paul Cezanne's influence most noted in Georges Braque's work Road near L'Estaque. GEORGES BRAQUE 'Viaduct at L'Estaque', 1908 (oil on canvas)

12 20 th CENTURY ART simplify objects to their most basic, primitive terms Picasso, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (The Young Ladies of Avignon, 1907

13 CUBISM & PICASSO the subject usually discernible

14 CUBISM & PICASSO figures & objects were dissected or "analyzed“ into many small facets Picasso Girl with a Mandolin (Fanny Tellier)

15 CUBISM & PICASSO figures & objects reassembled, to evoke those same figures or objects. Juan Gris, Portrait of Picasso 1912

16 CUBISM & PICASSO Analytical Cubism Began 1908 to 1912 Exploration of a subject’s pure form Mentally broke the subject into flat planes and arranged them in complex, overlapping relationships Georges Braque (French, ). Violin and Palette (Violon et palette), September 1, Oil on canvas.

17 CUBISM & PICASSO Limited Monochormatic Palette grays, browns, dark greens, ochre, dark yellows maintains an emotionless scene Picasso's Ma Jolie from 1912 is a classic example of this technique.

18 CUBISM & PICASSO "high" Analytic Cubism (1910–12), also called hermetic Candlestick and Playing Cards on a Table, Autumn 1910 Georges Braque (French, 1882–1963)Oil on canvas

19 CUBISM & PICASSO The composition of this small oval painting consists of clearly defined Cubist planes in hues of brown and ocher highlighted by black and white.

20 CUBISM & PICASSO At the center can be identified the corner of a table upon which rests the round base of a brass candlestick

21 CUBISM & PICASSO and, at the right, two playing cards —the ace of hearts and the six of diamonds.

22 CUBISM & PICASSO This still life presents one of the earliest instances of Braque's choice of an oval format.

23 CUBISM & PICASSO Soon, both Braque and Picasso would make frequent use of this shape. Woman with a Mandolin (Georges Braque,1910)

24 CUBISM & PICASSO In rectangular Analytic Cubism, planes and facets of forms concentrate in the center of a composition, Still Life with a Bottle of Rum, 1911Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881–1973)Oil on canvas

25 CUBISM & PICASSO and the corners remain relatively empty. Still Life with a Pair of Banderillas, Summer 1911Georges Braque (French, 1882–1963)Oil on canvas

26 CUBISM & PICASSO An oval format avoids such corners, and therefore Braque and Picasso sometimes favored this shape. The Clarinet (La clarinette), summer-fall Oil with sand on fine linen canva

27 CUBISM & PICASSO Picasso and Braque so abstracted their works that they were reduced to just a series of overlapping planes and facets mostly in monochromatic browns, grays, or blacks. In their work from this period, Picasso and Braque frequently combined representational motifs with letters

28 CUBISM & PICASSO Their favorite motifs were still lifes with musical instruments, bottles, pitchers, glasses, newspapers, playing cards and the human face. Landscapes were rare.

29 CUBISM & PICASSO These quasi-scientific and mathematical interests were linked with the ‘hermetic sciences’, the occult and alchemy………….

50 CUBISM & PICASSO Picasso, Man with a Hat and a Violin, 1912 from a a group of seventeen papiers collés created from newspaper articles arranged cuttings from Le Journal December 3 and 9, 1912, straight and slightly curved charcoal lines scaffolded text refers to: Balkan Wars, unrest of miners in the Nord Pas-de-Calais départements, issues debated in Parliament and to local announcements and advertisements.

51 CUBISM & PICASSO On one hand, the Cubist artists shared the unease about the increasing industrialization of their way of life as evidenced by their pre-Cubist fascination with all that was “primitive,” from tribal art, to children’s art, to folk art, to low art in an attempt to relocate a kind of artistic expression that was natural and simple and unsophisticated. On the other hand, these same Cubists were equally fascinated with the brave new world of machine driven objects, cars, airplanes and the modern ocean liner. The Cubists were the generation that will absorb and adjust to the Machine Age and the end of the old ways, accepting the new ways of living. The Eiffel Tower, once hated by Parisians who were used to and preferred Charles Garnier’s Opéra, was greatly admired by a new generation that saw the towering structure as the symbol of everything new and modern. Striding over the city of Paris, the Eiffel Tower nakedly revealed the nature and the “truth” of its materials and its method of construction—a deliberately modern statement of all that was new.
