Transcript of Cubism

Cubism is an abstract visual art style in which artist fragment their work into geometric shapes, distorted shapes, and/or use many points of perspective to capture the image. It started with Pablo Picasso and George Braque in the Spring of 1907 when the two met. Over the next year Braque and Picasso created the Cubism revolution.
What is Cubism?
Cubism is one of the most influential art styles of the twentieth century. Cubism was one of the first art styles to challenge the Western style single-point perspective art, and traditional religious art.
Cubism had three major influences Paul Cezanne, African Sculpture and Fauvism. Cezanne created the idea of spheres, cylinders, and cones in art to portray natural settings. Early Fauvism, distorted and colorful images, created by Matisse, Braque and other artist also influence Cubism.
Cubism was challenging fundamental art and was "new" by the standards of the twentieth century. Cubist, like Braque, wanted to create a fragmented art form because they were in the war and had been shocked by the sheer violence of the war. It shattered their lives.
Cubist Artist:
Juan Gris 1887-1927
Fernand Leger 1881-1955
Albert Gleizes 1881-1953
Jean Metzinger 1883-1956
Louis Marcoussis 1878-1941
Roger de La Fresnaye 1885-1925
Other Important Figures
Cubism was an out-lash of "new" art showing that art can be different than the regular painting of a Royal family. Cubism rejected almost all traditional art practices and conventions.
Cubism's Uniquness
We should care because Cubism changed the way that we see art by challenging the normal way of artist. We can express ourselves abstractly and interpretively thanks to the revolutionary ideas of Cubism.
Why should we care?
Cubism is an abstract visual art style in which the art piece is fragmented, geometric shapes, distorted images, and multiple-point perspectives.
The creators of Cubism were Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.
Cubism was influenced by Paul Cezane's natural shape imagery, Geoorges Braques early Fauvism with brightly colored distorted imagery, and African sculpture of masks .
