Exam Study Sheets
Cubism (1907-1925)
Key Concepts
Simultaneous vision, more information is depicted than would be perceived from any one angle
Perspective flattened onto a 2D plane (rather than the traditional imitation of the 3D world)
Fragmented images
Canvas as a space for the mind rather than a space for reality
Rejection of colour, movement, light
Synthetic Cubism was more accessible; used collage and papier colle
(allowed the addition of colour without causing 3D perspective), more colours, less fragmentation
Calls the viewer to analyze strange images in a world that is becoming increasingly strange
Monochrome palettes
Careful balance between abstraction and representation
