- About the work
Influenced by Paul Cézanne (1839-1906), the first Cubists – Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and Fernand Léger – began to reduce or break up objects, people, places and landscapes into geometric forms: a cube, a triangle, a circle. They disregarded the rules of perspective that give a picture the illusion of depth and that had prevailed in art since the 13th century. Instead, angles and sides appear to unfold and lay flat. Picasso took it a step further in this piece from 1912-13, through the use of an object that is flat by nature: a newspaper. From parts of printed newspaper pages, he made a bottle, a glass and a violin – a still life that is also a collage. The idea of using an everyday object like a daily newspaper (journal in French) as material in an artwork was groundbreaking. A few years later, Marcel Duchamp revolutionized art with the urinal he renamed Fountain—the first ever ready-made.
