While teaching some Cubism related lessons and doing some research, I
noticed my students feel very confused with Cubism and they think it is
messy and disorganized. Yet I think Picasso and Braque were quite cold and
calculating as they structured their Cubist paintings, even to the point of
removing most of the color. So rather than focusing on the confusion, I try
to get them to see how the artists were trying to restructure space and
that the subject matter is actually very organized - though not in the way
we are used to viewing things.
