Cubism

One of the three main currents in the art of the 20th century, aside from expression and fantasy, is the abstraction of forms. Certainly one of the greatest artists to lead the new century into this new manner of depiction was Pablo Picasso. Together, with Georges Braque, Picasso began laying a foundation for Cubism 1907 and 1914. Though cubism was initially a painted movement, its effects were eventually felt in sculpture and architecture. Cubism made a radical break with traditional art by conceiving of a new pictorial space. Still-lifes, landscapes and figures were depicted in fragmented manners in Cubism, and were influenced by the geometric art of Africa and Oceania. Two strains of Cubism exist, Analytic and Synthetic. Analytic Cubism, from 1909 to 1911, stressed the analyzing of objects and massed order and systems of objects. The well-known, highly fragmented portraits made of small, fused planes are common in these works. Color is subjugated for the inspection of shallow space in Analytic Cubism. Synthetic Cubism reversed these ideals, and instead of fracturing the images, built them up of seemingly preexisting shapes. Other artists who influenced the Cubist movement included Juan Gris, Robert Delaunay and Francis Picabia. The legacy of Cubism is the freedom it gave to artists to explore subjects in alternative ways.

Latest Product Reviews

After reading that this product wouldn't work on cheap magnetic brass hinges, I tried buying new ones in bronze. After a couple of failures with buying the correct size/type of hinge, I decided to try the rub n buff.For those who asked about using this over cheap hinges that are actually brass color over steel or aluminum (do magnet test), rub n buff does work. I just did it. Soak hinges in mineral spirits or thinner. Spray clean hinges with zinseer123, I used white which I had on hand. Let dry. (I sprayed both sides and let dry over night). Once dry, I applied rub n buff with a rag. Because I used white zinseer123 primer I had to used a toothbrush to apply the rub n buff in the crevices that showed still showed white. I used ebony and autumn gold to create bronze. They look amazing.

The document tape repaired my Bible beautifully! The corner of a razor blade worked great to "scratch" the corner of the tape to get it started. Thanks a million!
