  1. I see from an online article that Cubism began in 1907–08. We can imagine how the forms of this work from 1906, not long before, with a bit of squaring-off could turn into Cubism.

  2. Beautiful painting, and you introduced me to someone new. I hadn’t heard of this artist before..
    Have a lovely restful Sunday Marina 😘 💕⚘💐💕
