My DS the eldest is a senior in Studio Art at the University of Maine Orono (UMO). It is the end of the semester, and projects are due. This is one of the rare ones I get to see in progress and completed.... the assignment was to do a painting in the Cubism style. Cubism was developed between about 1908 and 1912 in a collaboration between George Braque and Pablo Picasso. Their main influences are said to have been Tribal Art (although Braque later disputed this) and the work of Cezanne. The key concept underlying Cubism is that the essence of an object can only be captured by showing it from multiple points of view simultaneously.
