Art History 6C May 14 2014 Lecture 12 Cubism and Duchamp William Hamett Still Life Violin and Music 1888 1 2 American painter doing the trick of the eye or trompe l oeil which is a technique that uses realistic imagery to create the illusion or appearance that the depicted object exists in three dimensions Harnett attempts this by means of the violin and other objects that cast a shadow like a real object would Braque Still life with pitcher 1910 1 2 Braque s goal is not to make the image appear life like Analytic cubism because there are lots of parts that make up the whole but don t really make sense Shows us how when something is put in a particular context it may represent something different He also wants to let the viewer know that this is a painting and the nail at the top of the painting serves as a visual to point this fact out Arbitrary Signs were important in Cubist art because they helped the viewer to make meaning of what they see For example when we see the word Cat we all picture a cat but the cat we picture is different Braque Factories at Rio Tinto L Estaque 1910 and Picasso s Port at Cadaques 1910 1 Once you start to paint it turns 3D at surface has layers and we start to explore the system Portrait of DH Kahweiler 1910 2 4 Patron of Braque and Picasso who paid them for their art and gave them a monthly allowance so all they had to worry about was painting Abstract and lots of lines for his hands viewer knows they are hands because it is a portrait and it makes sense to us this is the use of arbitrary signs we know they are in the form of a folded hands and positioned near the bottom where hands would typically be placed His face is also given some clarification and his hair is visibly parted The Portuguese Braque 1 2 A man maybe in a cafe or dock and holding a guitar or playing it Lots of aspects of this painting are broken down to give the view of the subject from all possible views Includes letters that are added not painted on the painting and give the piece a 3D appearance and let the viewer know it is a painting 0 Picasso s and Braque s exploration was not how to render something but how do we know what we see 0 Ma Jolie 191112 Picasso 1 Refers to a song from that time period 2 Must understand the language of cubism to understand the painting 3 Wanted to ask the question what is representation 0 Shift from analytic cubism to synthetic cubism 0 Analytic Cubism analyzing systems and taking apart the pieces that make up the representation 0 Synthetic Cubism a synthesis of things outside of image and incorporating them into the image 0 Still life with chair canning 1912 Picasso 1 Puzzles of the real and representation 2 Uses real rope to frame the painting this can be seen as a table or even a glass that was seen in cafes during that time period 3 J ai play in French but was also the name of a newspaper 4 The chair canning in the piece is not painted because he used a material that was like wallpaper so he used a mass produced item 5 But asks the question is it real 0 Braque Fruit Dish and Glass summer 1912 1 Paper colle 2 Coller to stick to glue 3 It is a collage and Viewer has to decide if the representation is a real imitation or not 4 Braque worked at a shop where he painted fake wood on fumiture and other objects 5 This is seen in his piece in the brown areas 0 1914Braque Mandolin VS Picasso Fruit Dish Fruits Violin and Glass 1912 0 Marcel Duchamp Nude descending the staircase no 2 1912 1 Was displayed at the Armory Show in New York City in 1913 2 Interested in motion and how a figure could be presented 3 The nude in the image is shown in all forms as she descends from the stairs and appears almost confusing to look at because it looks all combined but this is done to represent the sense of motion in time and speed as things change 0 Duchamp was also interested in the mechanical things and machines 0 The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors or The Large Glass 191523 1 Has a sexual connotation to it 2 There is a chocolate grinder which can be interpreted as the bachelors or the men grinding the females sexuality 3 Was cracked during its transportation and Duchamp said the crack finalized the piece and gave it meaning
