Transcript of Cubism Y1

The french impressionist painter Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) is mostly known for his paintings of Mt st Victoire
In these paintings he tried to capture the same subject in different light circumstances.
He focused on the light.
He also made several still lifes.
In these the light was his main subject
as well.
Here are a few, As you can see he had a keen eye for shapes.
He drew what he saw and did not care for logic or rules.
To show the objects he sometimes choose
different viewpoints in one drawing.
When the young painters
George Braque (1882-1963) and
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) saw these paintings they saw more than just the light.
They saw a way of showing the essence of an object. An essence that can't be seen from one side, you needed to show different sides at the same time.

In a portrait Picasso wanted to show both eyes, but a side view of the nose and possibly both ears
Different parts, different details, the total as a collage of details
Desmoiselles d'Avignon 1907 (243.9 cm × 233.7 cm)
This is one of Picasso's most famous works.
You see 5 young ladies.
Different views.
(notice the sill life).
A few of the faces show the developing interest of the (art)world in African/primitive art and culture.

It shook the world.
In 1937 Picasso made an other world shocking painting.
The spanish civil war witnessed the bombing of the village of Guernica. Picasso made this painting to make these war atrocities known to the world.
Again he created a collage of details and views
Guernica 1937 (349 cm × 776 cm)
George Braque made mostly portraits and still lifes.
Elements or shapes are recognizable, but there is too much information for a clear view.
In Cubist artworks, objects are analyzed, broken up and reassembled in an abstracted form instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context.
Back to the still life assignment !!!!!!!!!!!!
You draw what you see. Not what you know
NO cubism
, so just one point of view.
Different exercises
