1 20th Century Painting Cubism

2 Read the following quote from 20th century critic, Guillaume Apollinaire:
“Authentic Cubism is the art of depicting new wholes with formal elements borrowed not from the reality of vision, but from that of conception. This tendency leads to a poetic kind of painting which stands outside the world of observation; for, even in a simple cubism, the geometrical surfaces of an object must be opened out in order to give a complete representation of it… Everyone must agree that a chair, from whichever side it is viewed, never ceased to have four legs, a seat and back, and that if it is robbed of one of these elements, it is robbed of an important part.” By pulling 3-4 key ideas from this quote, please create your own definition of cubism.
