The Art: The cubism is a unique style of painting. Here the artists look at the objects, and imagine the same only as geometrical forms, like circles, triangles, cylinder, cones. Thereafter he or she transfers the imagination on the canvass. In cubism the artists use both cool and bright colours.
In cubism, the objects are first broken up, then analysed, and finally re-assembled in a summarize form. The object, or the limbs of a figure, would not create a feel of logical depth. a cubist painting consists planes that might be semi-transparent and intertwined. The final output might look like as an abstract painting.
The Artist: The cubist painters like Pablo Picasso and Braque had added new impetus and qualities in the movement of cubism paintings. These painters, and many of their contemporaries and followers, concentrated mainly on the geometrical figure rather than the colours. Their palettes remain much narrowed in number; mainly using ochre, grey and blue making the painting a monochromatic one. However the beginning of the cubist painting is also accredited to Paul Cézanne. In the painting given here, Girl With Mandolin, Picasso had used such a palette with relatively subdued colours.
While doing a painting, a cubism artist breaks the surface to be painted into small segments. Then the he or she endeavours to covert the natural forms in to geometrical ones. There emerges an abstract looking painting, a cubist painting.
