Quick Reference

A group of Cubist artists, who met informally between 1911 and 1913 in the studios of Jacques Villon and Raymond Duchamp-Villon in the Parisian suburb of Puteaux. Their brother Marcel Duchamp was also a member of the group, and others included Archipenko, Gleizes, Gris, Kupka, Léger, and Metzinger. The group (under the direction of Duchamp-Villon) produced a ‘Cubist House’ at the Salon d'Automne of 1912 and in the same year organized the Section d'Or exhibition. They criticized the Cubism of Picasso and Braque on the ground that it lacked human interest, and introduced an interest in colour that led to Orphism.
