    Hi!
    The first one is the correct. "In neither two type of cubist sentences" is placed at the beginning of the sentence for emphasis and since neither is a negative word we can/should use inverted word order. Otherwise it woulb be as follows:

    There is no sign of weakness in either two type of cubist sentences.(no emphasis)

    It should be "In neither of the two types of cubist painting is there any sign of weakness."

    If the listener/reader is already aware that there are two types, it could be simplified as: In neither type of cubist painting is there any sign of weakness.
