How should we look at a Cubist painting?

April 10, 2015 – 7:38 pm |

Dr Francis Halsall on Newstalk 106-108FM

In the second ‘History of Art Night School‘ Patrick and Dr Francis Halsall look at Cubism, its impact on art, and its role in the modern world.

How did this movement come about? Did Cubism offer a new way of representing time and space? How does Cubism reflect the modern world of mass production, the motor car, and photographs? Is Pablo Picasso the most influential artist of the 20th century? And can we take his claim that Cubism is an art of Realism seriously?

Join Patrick and Francis this Sunday at 8:45pm as they look at Cubism and its abstract representations of the real world.
