Cubism

circa (1907-1920s)

 

Beginning in Paris in 1907, the Cubist art movement, led by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, it abandoned the centuries of tradition in their paintings by rejecting the single viewpoint. Instead an analytical system was implemented in which three-dimensional subjects were fragmented and redefined from several different points of view simultaneously. Often the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The planes of the backgrounds and objects run into one another to create a shallow indefinite space, one of cubism's distinct characteristics. The movement was envisioned as ‘a new way of representing the world’, and integrated outside influences, such as African art, as well as new theories on the nature of reality, such as Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Cubism is often divided into two phases - the Analytic phase (1907-12), and the Synthetic phase (1913 - 1920s).
