Cubism and War

The Crystal in the Flame

Edited by Chistopher Green. Text by Neil Cox, Giovanni Casini.

Diego Rivera, "Still-life with Green House" (1917), from "Cubism and War."This book explores the work of those artists who attempted to keep alive the expanded possibilities opened up by Cubism in Paris between 1911 and 1914. This little community of artists refused to accept that recording the war or producing propaganda was their duty. Instead, they kept faith in their independence as individuals as this war of machines threatened to rob every front-line soldier of his humanity and to draw the globe into unprecedented conflict.

The vast majority of fit young Frenchmen were mobilized, so those artists left behind in Paris were either foreign or too old or unfit for combat. Pablo Picasso, then known as the inventor of Cubism, remained a prominent figure, alongside his fellow Spaniards Juan Gris and María Blanchard, the Mexican Diego Rivera, the Italian Gino Severini, the Lithuanian sculptor Jacques Lipchitz and the French painters Georges Braque, Henri Laurens, Fernand Léger and Henri Matisse.

One focus of this book is the sheer diversity of the work produced by these artists; another is the move made by most of them toward a more structured, architectural Cubism, especially from 1917, which could be taken as reparation against the destructive forces that seemed to have taken over the whole world.

Cubism and War: The Crystal in the Flame

Cubism and War: The Crystal in the Flame

Around 1915, smack in the middle of the catastrophe of the First World War, a number of European artists began to produce work later categorized as "Crystal Cubism"—a style within the Cubist movement known for "sharp-edged clarity and the poised balance of crystal structure," in the words of Cubism and War curator and editor Christopher Green. The work refused to accept propaganda, refused to report literally on the inhumanity and carnage closing in on all sides. It insisted on its own Modernity. And yet, it must still be seen as "a response directly to that other, unendurable reality." Pablo Picasso's "Still-life with Compote and Glass" (1914-15) is reproduced from Ediciones Poligrafa's extraordinary new survey of Crystal Cubism. Printed on super-thick, deluxe matte paper and brimming with accessible scholarship and beautifully printed reproductions of work by Gris, Léger, Laurens, Rivera, Matisse and others, this is one of the richest titles on our list this season, already close to selling out. continue to blog
