Pablo Picasso was one of the most famous artist in 20th century. His oil painting,
Les Demoiselles d’Avignon in 1907 "was by far the lagest Picusso had ever attempted'(p.65) .
It is 'more than 60 square feet in size' (p.65). He made 400-500 studies from 1906.
it show that he was very passionated on doing his work. he had patient to do a very large scale painting.
"The Demoiselles announced Cubism’s rejection of linear perspective, which had dominated Western art since the Renaissance, and anticipated the new representation of space and construction of form that would characterize the Cubist revolution. The painting’s radical formal innova- tions combined with its thorough disregard for conventional standards of beauty to jolt the advanced art world "(p.65). He painted with his unique style called cubism. It is also influenced by Spanish, Iberian sculpture and african tribal, showed with the African mask-like faces and Iberian style. This Picture reveals me with the conflict, disagreement and anger among the group.

Picasso's Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is an example of a new style of paintings of cubism which Picasso developed and creates a whole new history of his art works. This painting was the largest piece he ever attempt to do and i do agree that Picasso is the greatest artist. He research before he paints Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. According to "In all Picasso made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles" (p.65). From this it makes me feel that his work is more important and have more meanings than just a painting. It is shown on the drawing itself that he did not make up a distorted shape of human body but it is a form of human body that have been researched and was make it more attractive and interesting in a look of two dimensional form. To me Les Demoiselles d'Avignon is another painting that is from Picasso. but after i've read about the paintings in detail the painting become more attractive and shows how hard Picasso research in his paintings and how he studied the shape and form of human body before he creates his masterpiece.

GAH - INDA: Discussion of Picasso's 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon'

Post  winida mahachaiwanit on Tue Oct 18, 2011 10:30 am

Picasso was one of the most famous painter in the 20th century, I was impress as I studied more about him that he did many studies to improve himself and at last it was successful. Also, he was the person who started cubism and also who painted 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon'. Cubism was the movement where art style has been changed to modern art. Picasso make it more abstract, like the 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon' , its just 5 nudes people that doesn’t really look like people, he took many details out but still if you take a look at the painting you can still recognize that these people in that painting are people , and their details.

Still, Picasso has give people more inspiration and the guts to do more, to improve themselves to be better.

One of the most important canvases of the twentieth century, Picasso’s great breakthrough painting ‘'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon’ was articulated in response to several significant sources. When read trough the chapter, I recognized that Picasso wanted to show the changing of the time throughout this painting where other artists were mostly show the passive of being a women or prostitutes that the women were being ashamed of being nude or naked and have the eyes of the viewers staring on them, in contrast to this painting where he had the women or the prostitutes challenging by refuse to surrender to viewers’ eyes. This can be seen as the time has changed. The painting that looks so wrong and inaccurate with many shapes, showing the new truth and different ways that will occur to the future arts.

The admiration is conspicuously done through the dramatic use of words. The picture itself is no doubt being spotlighted back to that time of arts revolution. The author tried to point out that majority is pulled drastically toward the paint, which has changed the court of history.

Nevertheless, I was not so surprised by the way the author delivered such notions at the first glance. It does not mean that I reject the perspective the picture provided; if I were born in that era I would be so pleasantly delighted indeed. But since I was born in this century where everything is so free to thought, I felt such works and such use of writing or expressing something are so common find.

Discussion of Picasso's 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon'

Post  Sutinee Prongmake on Tue Oct 18, 2011 12:00 pm

I totally agree with the author’s view that Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is one of the most important paintings the twentieth century painted by Pablo Picasso who initiated the artistic movement of the century and the cubism became the most influential development as George Heard Hamilton described it as “it has been recognized as a watershed between the old pictorial world and the new,” (p.64).He is clearly changed the perspective of all painting more than other artist during that era.

I also agree with Nathakit’s opinion that Picasso wasn’t just a regular artist but a very unique and has that special characteristic and great potential that few people have. This special characteristic and potential is shown through his paintings which he spent great amount of time working on. Moreover, I believe that not only his style that inspired thousands of people but also his work process.

After I reading the passage , I do agree with “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century”(p.64). Picasso using his new style of painting showing his artwork with the combination of different style and unique technique form various artistswhich become a cubism. That effects the next generation of art

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon this is the Picasso’s large masterpiece. The painting is bigger than 60 square feet size and this painting is the one of the largest painting than Picasso had ever painted .

I am very surprise that ,his prepare for the painting are between 400 and 500 studies that’s a big number of studies and also form the text “a quantity of preparatory work unique not only in Picasso’s career, but without par- allel, for a single picture, in the entire history of art.” (p.65) this show picasso had his own ambitious
in order to create his work he was really hard working to create this painting

I agree with Kwanruk that “Picasso is a great artist” . he can mix the differnent style and create new unique style that is cubism and the large size of his work even how he studies and research before do the painting .
How great is he !

After reading the text by David W. Galenson on the sectiong of Les Demoiselles d'Avignon 1907, i am persuade and convince that this masterpiece painting of Pablo Picasso "is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century"(p.64,Galenson). What makes Demoiselles such a unique painting is how Picasso combines and put to getter different artistic style from many famous artists such the simplification of forms and illusionistic space from Cezanne and the distorn from Gauguin. “The Demoiselles presented a radical synthesis of a variety of earlier artistic styles that had never previously been considered to be related.” (p.65, Galenson). With his determination and referencing to may successful artist this make him the greatest of them all. Before creating his masterpiece to compete with his rival, Henri Matisse, Picasso have drawn 400-500 studies of the figures, foots, knees, refraction of light and many more. This amount of preparatory work shows the commitment he have for his paintings as well as painting it on a large scale with "more than 60 square feet in size" (p.65, Galenson).

Agreeing Aanchal's post commenting on how "Picasso studies an object like a surgeon dissecting a corpse"(pg 64. Galenson) and comparing his studies between an artist and a doctor. Usually artists and doctors were viewed as two distinct character, Galenson have find a way to compare how an artist,Picasso could be very delicate and study into the core of an art like a surgeon dissecting a corpse.

Les Demoiselles D’Avignon

Post  Banyaporn on Tue Oct 18, 2011 1:18 pm

Les Demoiselles D’Avignon was a masterpiece of Pablo Piccaso which used a concept of cubism to make the work stand out of other pieces. The painting showed the inspiration of Picasso to geometric shapes, the tangible nature of the object and especially, the solid colours that he used to express the idea of solid structure and stable forms without any light and other effects. As the word, Picasso remarked that “I want to tell something by means of the most common object.” (p. 36)

I really like the way that he saw the aesthetic of the real nature structures instead of making a picture dissolve into some darkness or brightness of film and optical effects. As you can see, other pictures throughout history are full of unrealistic and how the artists drew the pictures from their believing and thought. The effect of pale, darken, glitter, vibrating are expressed the emotions of the other artists while Pable Picasso got rid of these effects and play with the nature. For example, he interested in how C´ezanne adapt the knowledge of cubism to make the apples, baskets and bowls and how he broke objects into fragments and used them to create three dimensional to his paintings

The history of how he worked with Braque also a very crucial. They could guide each other and come to the same interesting where made both of them are radical artists revolution since the Renaissance period.

Eventhough "Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is clearly the most important painting of the
twentieth century" , for me it's just a normal painting because personally I don't like this style. I preffered realistic paintings like Titian's and Caravagio's. Demoiselles is considered as a cubist painting but i have to admit that there 's something about this painting that made it stands out from all other cubist paintings. As I read on and found out that "Picasso made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles" I was quite surprise of how much work he did for his masterpiece. This really shows how hard he tried in order to have a successful painting. The painting "is of the five nude women, their simplified forms" with " distorted features" I like how it is a very simple painting but because if the distorted features and the cubist style made it not so simple. This is what made it a unique painting.
Eventhough i do not like his Demoiselles painting, I do appreciate the fact that he decided to do something new and different. And this also inspire other artist to do what they believe in. "Picasso’s willingness to combine elements from such highly disparate sources produced a startling visual result that dramatically announced a new era, in which artists were free to break with stylistic continuity, and to adapt to their own purposes anything that they found useful from the vast history of art."

Pannathorn's response

Post  pannathorn e on Tue Oct 18, 2011 1:40 pm

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Picasso was no doubt the most important work of the twentieth century. It was revolutionary. George Heard had mentioned, “it has been recognized as a watershed between the old pictorial work and the new”. The reason why the painting was so striking was that it was something totally new, rejecting linear perspective in Cubism and giving a new outlook to the movement. Moreover, the Demoiselles was a radical and shocking combination of a variety of very distinct artistic styles; the composition in space of Cezanne’s, Gauguin’s distorted features and Picasso’s own “primitivism”. In addition, personally I think it was his dedication to this masterpiece that made the painting a memorable one. There were 400 to 500 studies for the Demoiselles, “a quantity of preparatory work unique not only in Picasso’s career, but without parallel, for a single picture, in the entire history of art” William Rubin had said. It was also the success of Henri Matisse, his rival, by the exhibition of his Fauve manifesto Le Bonheur de vivre in the spring of 1906 that influenced Picasso’s commitment to this masterpiece, which to me makes it a more personal and credible piece of work. The Demoiselles was one dramatically influential painting in art history.

I do agree with all of the responses that quote from page 64 of Conceptual Revolutions in Twentieth-Century Art “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century.” It’s a large-scale painting which was used new technique that combine with many different styles and also made extremely changed in art history. This painting influenced the Cubism. "The Demoiselles announced Cubism’s rejection of linear perspective, which had dominated Western art since the Renaissance, and anticipated the new representation of space and construction of form that would characterize the Cubist revolution. The painting’s radical formal innovations combined with its thorough disregard for conventional standards of beauty to jolt the advanced art world "(p.65). Not only the Cubism that was influenced by Picasso’s work but also the Modern art in these day. He braved enough to try something new, to use new technique and to make an alternative way to demonstrate his magnificent work. The reason why I used the word ‘brave’ is because this may turn out in another way. It could be a terrible work if this painting wasn’t succeed.

Picasso did lots of research before he painted this masterpiece. ”In all Picasso made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles ”(p.65). He’s a hard working artist who was obviously talented. According to his ability of art and his attempt to make his work to be as perfect as he could, this painting is absolutely succeeded.

"Les Demoiselles d’Avignon"

Post  David Wilcox on Tue Oct 18, 2011 2:45 pm

I haven't read the text, although I would have liked to. However, I've noticed a lot of people have stated, or similar to, that "Les Demoiselles d’Avignon"

pannathorn e wrote:Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Picasso was no doubt the most important work of the twentieth century. It was revolutionary.

I would agree that Picasso's paintings are revolutionary because he had combined the many different techniques and drawing styles of previous artists, not to mention his hard work and determination put into each drawing, but that's all I feel they really are. A master painter introducing a different style to the world; It's almost hard to say that it couldn't be revolutionary. He was one of the ones, you could say, leading the movement of cubism in my opinion.

But it's without question that he was probably one of the most significant painters in history “The Demoiselles announced Cubism’s rejection of linear perspective, which had dominated western art since the Renaissance, and anticipated the new representation of space and construction of form that would characterize the cubist revolution.”(p.65) simply because he had majorly influenced a direction for art.

Re: GAH - INDA: Discussion of Picasso's 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon'

Post  onchanok on Tue Oct 18, 2011 2:57 pm

The painting Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Picasso has created a new artistic movement of Cubism. In this panting, Picasso did not follow the linear perspective that existed since the Renaissance, but he replaced it with multiple perspectives by painting the figures from many vantage points. He avoided using vivid colors to create "solid and stable forms that represented underlying structures, rather than the momentary and changing reflections of light (Galenson 37)". I think it is a very clever way of painting that combined the previous styles of art throughout history and it requires a lot of courage for Picasso to paint in his unique way and do something different from previous artists. The author also mentioned "the painting’s radical formal innovations combined with its through disregard for conventional standards of beauty to jolt the advanced art world (65)". It is true that people’s ‘standards of beauty’ are not the same. By looking at the painting, someone might say they can easily paint this because the distorted nude figures does not follow the way we actually see them in real life. Picasso did not paint the figures realistically but he simplified them into his own way of seeing as he “replaced perception with conception (Galenson 36)”. Therefore, I was amazed to know all the hard work and effort that Picasso made for this painting and I think it is more complicated to paint in the way Picasso did because he was able to create “a visible, symbolic representation of invisible processes, forces, and structures (Galenson 36)”.

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon

Post  rudiampai on Tue Oct 18, 2011 4:52 pm

"Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century."(p.64)There are many reason why Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Picasso is the most important painting of the twentieth century.For Picasso himself,In his over all works,Les Demoiselles d’Avignon seems to be his masterpiece he spent lots of time doing the reasearch of it as William Rubin says "Picassomade between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles"(p.65) and also unique and outstanding from his other work.This painting has a big influent in art history.Picasso break the rules of art and create such a new and modern work in that time.Thats why this work is a door of change,a door to cubism.as later,cubism became the most influential development in the visual arts of the twentieth century.Coast. As it says"Picasso’s willingness tocombine elements from such highly disparate sources produced a startlingvisual result that dramatically announced a new era, in which artists were free to break with stylistic continuity, and to adapt to their own purposesanything that they found useful from the vast history of art."(p.65)As in this paragraph it is clearly that Picasso taking art to the next step,he's not afraid to try something new and not afraid about change or what other people in that time may say so this appear in his work "Les Demoiselles d’Avignon" which I truly agree and have no doubt why this painting by Picasso have seen as the most important painting of the twentieth century nowadays.

According to the passage that Pablo Picasso’s paintings was very well-know and the Pablo Picasso's speech that "Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth” In my opinion, Im total agree with this sentence and there are no words can explain better that that sentence. Picasso helps us to understand all of the point of view of art that the meaning of the picture is not only on the surface of each painting, but also each of the artist's willingly is substantial. Pablo Picasso was one of the most famous artist in 20th century. His masterpiece which became Cubism that very new and accomplish that showed in the book “The As we can see from the book that Galenson said “Les Demoiselles d’ Avignon is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century.” Picasso has a high potential that it is one of his characteristics too. He did a research before his masterpiece painting approximately 500 studies and I was deeply impressed by scenery.

Moreover, I really impressed how Picasso work on his painting and the process of his works. He can be one of the example artist for the new generation of painter in the case of industrious and tolerate

‘Les Demoiselles d’Avanon’

Post  Praewa on Tue Oct 18, 2011 6:05 pm

It is no doubt that ‘Les Demoiselles d’Avanon’ by Picasso made the revolutionary for artist. I do totally agree with others comment that said ‘ Picasso did lots of research before he painted this masterpiece.’(Nutcha) because he what he did made him achieve in understanding of cubism’s rejection of linear perspective Before create master piece. Picasso not only combine technique from other artist but he also painted on 60 feet square size ‘More than 60 square feet in size, the painting was by far the largest Picasso had ever attempted.’ (Galenson, 65) shows that he not only combine and practice from other artist but he also tried new way to express his paiting. The representation of ‘Les Demoiselles d’Avanon’ shows the development of visual arts “This is the first appearance of the painting- equation.”13 As Cubism became the most influential development in the visual arts of the twentieth century”(Galenson, 65) which made him be such a great significant artist this in 20th century.

Most of the things made him success is he think out of box find new ways and a lot of practice. I personally admire him as well. I disagree with Alliya from her point of view said ‘I believe that had Picasso not make the painting, eventually someone else will.’ (Alliya)because it maybe true that someone else will make a painting but not exact the same painting like ‘Les Demoiselles d’Avanon’ because its from he use his own personal though to create this master piece.

LES DEMOISELLES D’AVIGNON

Post  Nutrada Syncharoen on Tue Oct 18, 2011 6:06 pm

I agree with what pannathorn e said, “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Picasso was no doubt the most important work of the twentieth century. It was revolutionary.” I am fascinated by Picasso's hard work and his strong passion for arts. He got inspired by older artist and developed their great techniques into something greater.

Back to the painting, Picasso made four hundred to five hundred study drawing. And in total, this painting is done in seven years. The size of the painting is sixty square feet, this is the largest painting Picasso ever paint. This painting established a new painting pattern and a new style to the art world. It rejects the tradition of art by using colors to represent meanings and the distortion of human figures.

To me, this movement and studies of Picasso was not only a revolutionary but also the establishment and inspiration. “As Cubism became the most influential development in the visual arts of the twentieth century, the Demoiselles stood out more and more clearly as the century’s greatest masterpiece.” (p.65, Galenson)

LES DEMOISELLES D’AVIGNON Respond

Post  patrattakorn on Tue Oct 18, 2011 6:36 pm

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, 1907, by Pablo Picasso, is the most important painting of the twentieth century, according to the book Conceptual Revolutions in Twentieth-Century Arts (p.64), and the same as most of the previous posts, I do agree that this painting, The Demoiselles, is truly the most important painting of 20th century and Picasso greatest master piece, because this paint is the one that start the revolutionary of art in the 20th century and also the beginning of the new movement of art in the new era, called the “Cubism”.

It is no doubt that this painting is his greatest master piece, because in order to create this paint Picasso has ‘made over 400 drawing’ for his research and study (p.65). The quote “Picasso studies an object like as surgeon dissecting a corpse.”, by Guillaume Apollinaire (p.64), also show how dedicate and delicate Picasso was and how much effort he has putted in his work. This painting also include different artistic styles for different famous artists in the history, for example “their composition in space were derived in part from Cezanne’s late paintings of bathers” and “The stylized and distorted features of the figures drew on Gauguin’s late work” (p. 65), which lead me to agree with the first post by Nitiwat, that Picasso, himself, was truly great artist, because he was able to learn the styles of different famous artists in the history and then mixed them with his own style. We can also say that he stole other technique and then improve it. It size is also a stunning part, because the painting itself is about 60 feet square.

In conclusion, I do agree that The Demoiselles is the most important painting of the 20th century, because it is the painting that start the revolution of art and rejected what most of the artists have drew in the part, which is the linear perspective.

Response to Les Demoiselles d’ Avignon

Post  Felicia on Tue Oct 18, 2011 6:41 pm

The painting, Les Demoiselles d’ Avignon (1907) was painted using the most important artistic movement at the time, cubism. Cubism thoroughly transformed modern art. The reason that he uses cubism because he want to tell something by means of the most common object and he wanted to represent the tangible nature of objects without the use of linear perspective (P.37).

Picasso was intended to make this painting a masterpiece as his prepotory was work was unique. He made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles (P.65), it is clear that he put a great deal of hard work to understand the object and its details, therefore he can portray his understanding through his paintings and using cubism to interprets it. It is true what Guillaume Apollinaire stated, Picasso studies an object like a surgeon dissecting a corpse (P.64). Also, this painting was more than 60 square feet in size, the painting was by far the largest Picasso had ever attempted (P.65).

The painting became important and successful as he understood the objects and was able to portray his understanding by using the cubism. He was very determined and so his hard work is paid off. There is no doubt why Pablo Picasso became the greatest artist in twentieth Century.

Post  Sethavudh on Tue Oct 18, 2011 8:02 pm

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon,1907, by Pablo Picasso ,No doubt that this masterpiece is the most important painting of the twentieth century. Picasso has combined several style of art to create this painting. The preparation was quite stunning "in all Picasso made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles". Moreover , Demoiselles is the largest painting that Picasso had ever painted, with 60 square feet in size for a single picture. For someone to have a potential and capable to paint something as large as 'Les Demoiselles d’Avignon". Picasso is the greatest artist ever and his work will be memorable.

Even though ,Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is a revolutionary painting that inspired many artist for coming up with branches of ideas but i always think that all new things that already adapted are better than original one, not just an art but for everything. Lastly i hopefully to be stunned by someone's masterpiece that as good as Picasso.

Reading Response: Picasso's “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon”

Post  Chittranuch Napawan on Tue Oct 18, 2011 9:15 pm

I do agree with many posts above that “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” is one of the works that leads to a new movement of art, “Cubism”, which is "the most important and certainly the most complete and radical artistic revolution since the Renaissance" (p 36). I am impressed by how Picasso has borrowed many styles from many artists, but still able to make a work that is distinguish and more successful than any others. I agree with Alliya when she said, “The nudes depicted was distorted but drawn in a style that is still recognizable.” This is possibly because Picasso has studied and experimented a lot before deriving to this painting. As Guillaume Apollinaire said “Picasso studies an object like a surgeon dissecting a corpse.” (p 64). For many years that “Picasso made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles” (p 65) I think his hard work paid out since the painting has become very important to the history of modern art and it is also very inspirational not only the painting, but his process as well. However, I don’t really understand why “Matisse denounce the painting as an attempt to discredit modern art” and as well as many other artists that considered this painting ugly. (p 65) Is it because it is too abstract and people at that time are still not used to this idea of expression and not being open-minded? For me, I admired the daring of Picasso to reject the popular current movements in painting and chose to do lines and shapes drawing rather than concentrating on the color and light forms of Impressionism.

As i read through the book "Conceptual Revolutions in Twentieth Century" which make me understand how the history of art in twentieth century. The artist in those period have to rethink by finding the new way to express their personal in to picture or painting or having new style of their own that interact to people's eyes which they can do many things with color, composition, lines, and etc. Not only 'NEW' way to express themselves but also no limited way which means that they can go as deep as they want to find the new thing which those thing will make their painting become more modern "artist must be concerned not only to choose new contemporary subjects, but to represent them with a new techniques, for in the accelerated pace of modern life"(1863.p.22).

Pablo Picasso is transformed modern art artist. Also he show how the new forms of society, changing patronage, varying geographic conditions that have gone to produce the sucessful of different achools, different style, different pictorial idioms. For example, Picasso and Barque's work want to "present the tangible nature of objects without the use of linear perspective"(p.55) which is a new idea and style that i have talk about.

LES DEMOISELLES D’AVIGNON RESPOND

Post  Bunyapha on Tue Oct 18, 2011 10:01 pm


After reading the passage about painting, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon by Pablo Picaso, I do agree with author that this painting "is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century" (p.64). Picasso used the combination of different style and unique technique form various artists to shows his work which became a start of cubism. For me, I impress that he did a lot of preparatory work "William Rubin concluded that in all Picasso made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles" (p.65) so, its shows the responsibility that he has for his paintings.
The author said that "the painting’s radical formal innovations combined with its through disregard for conventional standards of beauty to jolt the advanced art world (p.65)". I think people have different reaction to the painting. For example, at first time I looked at the painting, I think it was easily painted and it isn't looks beautiful because the distorted nude figures does not follow the way we actually see them. However, after reading how this painting was made I realize that why this painting is the greatest master piece.

Pablo Picasso is a special case who dominates this century from a great height said Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler (36). He initiated ‘Cubism’ which is the most important artistic movement that transformed modern art. (64) His masterpiece, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, stood out with a radical synthesis that had never been considered before. It became the most influential development in the visual arts of the twentieth century. He tried to represent the tangible nature of objects, viewing from many different vantage points and different composition without using of linear perspective which has dominated since the Renaissance. He broke the stylistic continuity and adapted his own work that he found useful from the vast history of art. He became a painter who has had more influence on modern art than any other single man (38) because of his efforts and his capabilities referred to the passage that he made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles, a large quantity of preparatory work unique for a single picture.

Re: GAH - INDA: Discussion of Picasso's 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon'

Pablo Picasso was one of the most important artists in the 20th century. His technique in his great influenced painting in the 20th century called "Les Demoiselles d’Avignon" (P.64) introduced the new movement called Cubism.
As George Heard Hamilton explained, “Cubism was perhaps the most important and certainly most complete and radical artistic revolution since the Renaissance. New forms of society, changing patronage, varying geographic conditions, all these things have gone to produce over the past five hundred years a succession of different schools, different styles, different pictorial idioms. But none of these has so altered principles, so shaken the foundations of Western painting as did Cubism.” (P.36) Cubism replaced the restrictive single viewpoint of Renaissance perspective. “Picasso and Braque wanted to present the tangible of nature of objects without use of linear perspective, which they regarded as mechanical and arbitrary”(P.37), Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is a perfect example for cubism as there is no linear perspective on the painting. And also this painting shows how Picasso developed and combined many techniques together to create his unique style work, which introduced to the world what Cubism is.
