I truly enjoy my acrylics that I ordered from you. Price-wise they are very competitive from where I used to buy my acrylics. I will continue placing orders with MisterArt.com!

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

I really like these pencils. I accidentally found a technique that really exemplified the "magic" in them. Rolling the pencil to preserve the point and coloring in a circular motion really brings out the random beauty of the colors in coloring a small petaled flower like a zinnia. I have colored an entire picture with one pencil and gotten raves about it. The biggest drawback I am experiencing is the lack of tutorials to help people understand how to use them. I have seen critiques where the artist did not have a clue how to use them. I have also seen a Russian tutorial that shows a lot of blending techniques that really show some extraordinary effects. I am currently exploring their use for backgrounds. I like the pencils and find them a challenge to explore the "magic."

I used Porcelaine 150 about 14 years ago on some glasses; they have been washed over and over in the dishwasher, and the color is still bright and beautiful. I did bake them in the oven as the directions specified. This is a great product!
