Collection: Cubism

Cubism was a revolutionary art movement that emerged in Paris in the early 20th century, pioneered by artists Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. It is characterized by the fragmentation of form and the simultaneous representation of multiple viewpoints.Cubist artists sought to depict the world in a new way, challenging traditional notions of representation and perspective. They broke down objects into their component parts and reassembled them in abstracted, geometric forms, often using muted colors and muted tones.Cubism had a profound impact on the development of modern art, influencing many later movements such as Futurism, Surrealism, and Abstract Expressionism. Its legacy can be seen in the work of many contemporary artists who continue to explore new ways of representing the world through their art.
