Woman with a Fan - Metzinger

We just learned about the painting Portrait of Jacques Nayral by French artist Albert Gleizes.

Another famous work of art is the painting Woman with a Fan by French artist Jean Metzinger in 1912.

This is another painting in the abstract art style of cubism.
You can see in the painting that there is a woman with a fan, sitting on a bench.
The different shapes and colors are there to show the many different sides and different shapes in the world, and the wild shapes almost make it look like the painting is moving.
