About Nude No. 1

“Nude No. 1” is an artwork created by Alberto Magnelli in 1914, which manifests the visual principles of Cubism and Fauvism. It belongs to the genre of nude painting (nu) and stands as a representation of the revolutionary styles that emerged in the early 20th century.

The artwork presents a figure that is stylistically simplified and abstracted, suggestive of the human form without delving into realistic details. The background is characterized by geometric shapes and bold colors, which is typical of Cubist and Fauvist artworks. There is a vivid contrast between the cool blues and purples that seem to represent a stylized environment and the warmer tones of the central figure. The figure dominates the composition, conveying a sense of serene confidence amidst the surrounding fragmentation. Elements like the jug on the lower left contribute to the still-life aspect of the piece, integrating domestic iconography with the human form. This juxtaposition of figure and abstraction underscore the harmony between the human subject and the spatial environment, a balance that is frequently explored within Cubist and Fauvist paintings.
