Art historian Robert Rosenblum called Cubism “one of the major transformations in Western art.” The movement paralleled discoveries in philosophy and psychoanalysis, and it gave painting the same problematic status as the concrete poetry of Apollinaire and the atonal music of Schoenberg.
The speaker will explore how Cubism, influenced by Cézanne and tribal art, developed from the tentative beginnings of landscapes painted in Provence to the intricate and mysterious portraits and still lifes of the High Analytic style.
