Importance of Cubism

When we visit an Art Gallery it is common to be surprised with the different styles of painting that were present in different times of humanity, from those Realistic Paintings that seek to reproduce to the maximum the features and qualities of the world that surrounds us, generally being Portraits of Rich People, who paid famous artists to be immortalized on a canvas, as well as the other extreme where designs seek to generate an Impression or Reaction in the observer.

Among these different genres, one of the most famous is that of Cubism, one of the greatest exponents of this being the Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, as well as his compatriot from Madrid, Juan Gris, who were promoters of a change in what is Traditional Art. , moving away from reality and giving rise to the use of a rather particular technique.

In this artistic movement it stands out for the use of a large number of straight lines to be able to conform the different designs, so that each object could be considered as consisting of Cubes of Different Size, without using perspective as a way of generating realism, but using a Multiple Perspective, in which each object found in the same plane has its own geometric conformation.

The paintings that have been made using the Cubism Technique then have a predominance of straight lines, lacking Details and Features, but simply seek to develop at most up to Two Characteristics of the object to be represented, being quite simplistic and looking for the observer Whoever interprets and notes the details regarding the appearance of what is portrayed.

In many cases it is very difficult to interpret the Work, especially if the person who observes it does not have much knowledge of what has been captured on the canvas, in addition to the fact that the form, as we have said, is built from Cubes and Designs Rectilineos.
