Havana exhibits much of what the “cubist movement” was trying to achieve between 1907 and 1921.
To create the effect evident in the streets of the Cuban capital today,
European artists broke up, analyzed and reassembled objects, and then instead of depicting them from one viewpoint, they presented the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context.
“Cuban Cubism” is a representative painting that depicts a small section of Havana that has been broken up by time and is yet to be reassembled. It’s multitude of viewpoints present a subject that the artist as no need to embellish.
