Today you are going to look at cubism art. In around 1907 two artists living in Paris called Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque developed a revolutionary new style of painting which transformed everyday objects, landscapes, and people into different shapes.
These are some of Pablo Picassos famous cubist paintings. We also call it abstract art. This means that the painting doesnt look like a real person or real object. It is a picture made up of different shapes to make it look like a person or object.
This painting is called 'The weeping woman' by Pablo Picasso. What shapes can you see in the painting?What do you think she is so sad about? Tell an adult.
This is called 'Fruit on a table cloth' By Georges Baraque. What fruit can you see? What shapes can you see?
This is called 'Seated woman in red arm chair' by Picasso
