There's a new show in Paris of Cubism, called "Au Temps des Cubistes" ("The Cubist Days"), but one quite different from the usual exhibitions, which tended to focus mainly on the scene in Paris. Cubism was an influence throughout Europe, and on view are works from Swedish, Russian, German, Czech and Hungarian Cubists. The exhibition is at the Galerie Berès at 25 Quai Voltaire and 35 Rue de Beaune until Jan. 27 2007; otherwise, you can see some of the work in the slide show accompanying the article by Souren Melikian. The painting on the left is "Still Life with Bottle" (1917) by Marie Vorobieff Marevna.
