Personally I am not a fan of the style of art called cubism, I am not sure why, but it is so. After doing some research on cubism I learned to appreciate it more for its ideals even though the paintings aren't aesthetically pleasing to me. As I said in class cubist painters break down forms and distort them, but when the movement first started the point of doing this "break down" was to-like most new trends- turn away from the realistic system of representing bodies. Perspective, planes, and differences between subject mater and background were fudged by using the same colors and abandoned. The goal of cubist was to form a new way of seeing the world.
