+ What Is Cubism ? It's a style of painting where the artist tries to depict an object from multiple angles simultaneously within the two-dimensional plane of the canvas. Cubism paintings are paintings which are broken up, analyzed and put together in an abstract way - Instead of drawing the picture from one angle, the artist draws the picture from loads of different views to show the object in greater detail. Late 1908, Picasso and Braque developed Cubism, although some inspirations existed earlier. The most vital period of Cubism ended in 1917 but it still influences and informs artists today. The first paintings in the style we call analytical cubism were painted in 1908 by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. They changed their style into synthetical cubism in 1912-1915. Other artists painted in styles that may be seen as cubism until about 1925.
+ Artist The Artist that made this artworks name is George Braque. He as born in a small community in Seine which is near Paris. His father and grandfather, both amateur artists, were the owners of a prosperous house-painting firm. In 1890 the family moved to Le Havre, which had also been, in the time of the seascapist Eugène Boudin and the young Claude Monet, an early centre of Impressionism. The boy attended the local public school, accompanied his father on painting expeditions. In the spring of 1907 Braque exhibited six paintings at the Paris Salon des Indépendants and sold them all. Kahnweiler introduced him to the avant- garde poet and critic Guillaume Apollinaire, who in turn introduced him to Picasso. Braque was at first disconcerted by Picasso's recentwork Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907). “Listen,” he is reported to have said, “in spite of your explanations your painting looks as if you wanted to make us eat tow, or drink gasoline and spit fire.” Despite these reservations, Braque painted his Large Nude (1908), a somewhat less-radical take on Picasso's use of distorted planes and shallow space. The two artists became close friends, and within a few months they were engaged in the unprecedented process of mutual influence from which Cubism emerged.
+ Why I Like It ? I like the style of artwork because it is very interesting and it makes me want tot think. I like that it makes the picture look abstract in a way and I really like abstract art because it makes me want to think what the artist is trying to show in this painting. I like Cubism as well because it shows how different people look at pictures in different ways. Cubism showed how you can see a object in a different way and rendering a subject. The artist challenged us of how we look at the objects. Cubism paved the way for all later art movements that questioned established norms of aesthetics and beauty. By incorporating multiple perspectives, painters forced audiences to consider time as a part of art.
+ Still Life And Cubism ? Still Life - a painting of inanimate objects such as fruit or flowers Cubism - Cubism paintings are paintings which are broken up, analyzed and put together in an abstract way Still life is when you are painting something, which is an inanimate object, and Cubism is when you paint a still life but break it and put it in a way that it looks abstract. Cubism is abstract and when something is abstract you cant tell what the artist is painting you have to think about it. In a realistic still life painting you can see clearly and precisely what the artist is trying to show in the painting.
+ Difference As you can see above that on the right (Cubism) you cant tell what the artist is trying to show. On the left (still life) you can exactly tell what the artist is trying to show.
