Pablo Picasso's Girl with a Mandolin, NYC - MoMA, (Fanny Tellier)

Cubist painting is unique in style and rhythm of putting paints on canvass, in a measured and beautiful manner.

The art of painting known as Cubism painting is a movement of art that uses multiple perspectives instead a single view point.

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 C├ęzanne. 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.

In this painting Picasso would have imagined this girl in his mind like this: one square for head and neck and for the rest of the body there would be similar small squares. The above painting by Picasso is one of the best cubist paintings.
