Punch Cartoon 43

I thought I’d share this from one of my other blogs as it gives an example of the impact cubism was having one hundred years ago.

The Humour of the Great War

In 1913, the year before the start of the Great War, a major exhibition in New York introduced the Americans to European modern art and to cubism in particular. Cubism was still very much a young art movement. The main work which caused controversy at the Armoury Show was Duchamp’s Nude Descending A Staircase which was described as ‘an explosion in a shingle factory’.

This is the background to this cartoon which was published in Punch on 14th October 1914:
