Female nude drawings in Cubist style are early 20th century drawn in pencil and framed with grey linen passe par-tout. In these drawings foreshortening, modelling, movement and chiaroscuro in muted tones of blacks and grey are typical of the cubist style. The main characteristics of Cubist art is the emphasis of flat, two-dimensional interweaving of planes and lines. Cubism was a rejection the earlier traditional techniques of perspective and was one of the most influential styles of the 20th century. It was first recognized around 1907 with Picasso's celebrated nude painting Mademoiselles D'Avignon.
