Cubism - Seeing The Whole Picture

Violin and Candlestick Paris, (spring 1910) Ro...Image via Wikipedia“I felt dissatisfied with traditional perspective. Merely a mechanical  process, the perspective never conveys things in full. It starts from one viewpoint and never gets away from it. But the viewpoint is quite unimportant. It is as though someone were to draw profiles all his life, leading people to think a man only had one eye.” – Georges Braque, in Friedenthal, Letters Of Great Artists
The painting is Braque’s Violin And Candlestick.
