"The Portuguese" de Georges Bracque / Fracturas

«I want more than the Renaissance painter or even Cézanne, I want to express the entire cup simultaneously on the static surface of the canvas since I can hold all that visual information in my memory. I want to render the cup’s front, its sides, its back, and its inner walls, its bottom from both inside and out, and I want to do this on a flat canvas. How can this be done? The answer is provided by The Portuguese. In this canvas, everything was fractured. The guitar player and the dock was just so many pieces of broken glass. By breaking these objects in to smaller elements Braque and Picasso are able overcome the unified singularity of an object and instead transform it into an object of vision.»
