(1910, oil on canvas)
I picked Georges Braque's Violin and Pitcher as my example of modern art because it is constructed from cubism. Cubism was a revolution in modern art developed by Picasso and George Barque. It was the first style of abstract art of the 20th century. Cubism was an attempt by these artist to change up the traditional styles of western art. In this example Barque analyzed the subject from many different view points and reconstructed it with geometric shapes.
