1. Read PDF posted on Blackboard: 

“New Encounters with Les Demoiselles d’Avignon: Gender, Race, and the Origins of Cubism”

Anna C. Chave

The Art Bulletin, Vol. 76, No. 4 (Dec., 1994), pp. 596-611


1a. Watch: Picasso, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon:

Watch: Matisse, Piano Lesson:

2.  Respond to the following prompt: How can Cubism be seen in Picasso’s  painting and how does Matisse reveal his own brand of cubism in his  painting? Each artist is using his own technique to show that many  perspectives are a fundamental way of understanding the modern world and  the way that it is seen. While Picasso uses structure, Matisse uses  color. 

You may borrow ideas from readings, or videos, but tell me you are doing so using quotation marks.
