Described as the most influential art movement of the early twentieth century, Cubism artists rejected the traditional techniques of perspective and three-dimensionality and interpreted their surroundings in fragmented, geometric forms that explored the two-dimensionality of the canvas. Leading the movement, Pablo Picasso (1881-1873) and Georges Braque (1882-1963) challenged viewers to respond to “everyday” subject matter in their most basic forms. Cubist painters during this time often used multiple points of perspective, monochromatic colours, and mixed media to further explore their subject matter. This online exhibition will explore important early Cubist painters, under the influence of Picasso and Braque, and their approach to a classic subject matter: the human form. Highlighting works from Diego Rivera, Juan Gris, Roger de La Fresnaye, and Robert Delaunay, this exhibition will reveal the early works that exerted a profound influence on future painters pursuing complete abstraction. Created as a temporary exhibition for the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, France.
