Art Talk: Pablo Picasso and Cubism – K

November 29 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Pablo Picasso, Girl with a Mandolin, 1910

 

Invented in 1907, Cubism was a new vision for a new century. Characterized by geometric figures, fragmented space, and a monochromatic palette, Cubism dared to challenge the authority of traditional painting established five hundred years earlier during the Renaissance. When the first Cubist paintings of flat bodies and splintered faces were initially unveiled in the art world of Paris, they were met with outrage and scandal, but Cubism went on to become one of the most influential styles of the twentieth century. We will be looking at paintings by the founders of Cubism, Picasso and Georges Braque, as well as works by the other brilliant Modernists who developed this revolutionary new approach to representing reality.
