44.   E. Hone:  Composition with two elements, 1925

Third phase of Cubism - an architectonic plastic organisation, approaching the possibility of great mural painting.  Even if it is still limited to the framework of an individual expression, it is certainly full of the promise of being able to grow into a work of monumental stature.  A field full of flowers is only a plurality of individual flowers, each of them, equally, embodying the same principles of construction; a tree is not a magnified leaf.  So, monumental painting is not just one element magnified beyond all measure, but a multiplication of elements which are able to relate one to the other in a way that is natural.  Here we can see the movement of the surface both in translation and rotation.

45.   M. Jellett: Composition with three elements, 1925
Third phase of Cubism.  The same observations can be made as for illustration 44.

46.   Y. Poznansky: Composition with two elements, 1925
Third phase of Cubism.  Same remarks as for the previous illustration.

47.   Robert Pouyaud: Painting, 1926

Third phase of Cubism.  A plastic, rhythmic organism realised on the basis of the flat surface accomplishing movements of translation and rotation.
