    About Albert Gleizes

    In rejecting what he perceived as Picasso’s and Braque’s “Impressionism of form” and dissection of the subject, Gleizes embraced a style that attempted to capture the subject in its absolute order and truth. With its broad, overlapping planes of brilliant color, Peinture à Trois Elements embodies the second synthetic phase of Cubism.

    During the 1920s Gleizes works are a bridge between figuration and abstraction. With ample opportunity to observe and study his subject, Gleizes worked through these studies to resolve the compositional harmony of the painting, inflecting an otherwise staid genre with a circular rhythm. Gleizes experienced increasing frustration toward the end of the 1910s as the avant-garde embraced Dada, an anarchic enterprise that ran counter to his quest for social values in art. He began to focus increasingly on the compositional harmonies of his subjects in the belief that rhythmic harmonies were more universal and hence superior to subjective responses.

    Cubism, with its new geometry, its dynamism and multiple viewpoint perspective, not only represented a departure from Euclid's model, but it achieved, according to Gleizes and Metzinger, a better representation of the real world: one that was mobile and changing in time. For Gleizes, Cubism represented a "normal evolution of art that was mobile like life itself.".
