Please forgive me but I forgot the name of this artist (I think his name was August Herbin), but I thought that these four paintings of his gave a perfect example of the progression from hybrid-cubist painting to cubist, then to looking back to representation after WW1. These are four out out of a small room full of his paintings. He was located in a side room off of the Matisse hall in the Musee d' Art Moderne. All of these paintings were made in a relatively small gap of time, and some of the following paintings were landscapes and then more surreal looking paintings.

(PS, I'm not sure why the photos were uploaded in this particular order but they are meant to be seen from the bottom up.)
