Cubism at Its Finest


Well look at this adorable...thing.

Calling all artists: first one to name this gets bragging rights!

...give up?

This sculpture, located right in between two gorgeous NYU dorm buildings, is a large Picasso statue made of stone using cubism. Considered one of the most influential art movements of the 20th century, cubism artwork is when objects are analyzed, broken up, and then reassembled in a very unique and abstract form.

This statue however, is a reinterpretation of Picasso's original work, "Portrait of Sylvette" and the whole thing, dorms and sculpture included, have now been considered a landmark and has achieved many architecture awards as well.
