|Giza, Cairo: the Pyramids of Egypt Series|
With over fifty paintings in this series from early 2000-2003, the artist Jorge Perez-Rubio settled on a geometric approach to
this challenging subject. He was inspired by the structural work of Paul Klee, and while some of the pieces are more in deference to that
style, many were "surprisingly original" depictions of this subject.

The Pyramids , Giza, Cairo
Above is the first painting of The Great Pyramid (2001)by Jorge Perez-Rubio, now in a
private collection. One of a series inspired
by a variety of images of the pyramids and a painting by Paul
Klee of a mountain in the Alps titled The Niesen (1915).
That Swiss landscape was painted under the influence of Cubism
a year after his journey to North Africa.
