Drawing, Still Life
A breakthrough moment in Kauffer’s career was a solo exhibition of his watercolors in 1917. Roger Fry organized the show, which included Suspension Bridge. As Fry described in his accompanying catalog essay, Kauffer had begun fracturing planes and abstracting pictorial elements, as well as drawing attention to the flatness of the paper. These artistic choices were a direct influence of the style of cubism.
Cubism was a European art movement that began in 1907. Cubist artists combined abstraction with an attempt to represent multiple planes simultaneously, thereby representing several points of view at the same time.
