SCULPTURED BUST OF SYLVETTE BY PICASSO/1965 Picasso’s revolutionary “building material” compounded of voids and solids, is hard to describe with any precision. The early critics, who say only the prevalence of sharp edged and angles, dubbed the new style Cubism. So in 1907 Pablo Picasso created Cubism. Georges Braque later pursued it. After about a year working together Picasso and Braque were able to produce pictures composed almost entirely of cut-and-pasted scraps of material, with only a few lines added to complete the designs.

This technique builds up the surface with small square brushstrokes, which was a new way of seeing and painting the world. Cubism is mainly concerned with surface design, pushing emotion and feelings out of the way. [MH] {GB}
