New Collage By Cubist Artist
Pablo Picasso has become popular and controversial through painting in the new style of “Cubism” which he helped create with fellow painter George Braque between 1907 and 1911. The style broke the bonds of traditional art and became popular among new, young rebel artists. The first organized group exhibition by Cubists took place at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris during the spring of 1911 although neither Picasso or Braque had paintings exhibited. Picasso and Braque are still experimenting with the new art style and are trying to breaks the bonds of oil and canvas.
Picasso has been working with collage, using different materials including newspaper. The papers often reflect the issues and commentaries of the day and their placement in works of art are a juxtaposition of art and reality.
On December 3, 1912 Picasso made Siphon, Glass, Newspaper, and Violin in Paris, France. It utilizes cut-and-pasted newspaper, hand-painted faux bois paper, paper, and charcoal.
