An innovative abstract art movement that began in Paris in 1907 by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. It was a reaction against the traditional naturalistic painting techniques. The Cubists depicted many different views of objects as superimposed geometric planes with the intention of expressing the idea of an object rather than any particular aspect. See Movements; Cubism
Art movement started around 1909 and led by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque that depicts the multiple views a spectator would see of an object. Instead of a singular perspective, Cubist painting shows many perspectives so that the image is fragmented into various planes of the picture surface.
The most influential style of the twentieth century, developed in Paris by Picasso and Braque, beginning in 1907. The early mature phase of the style, called Analytical Cubism, lasted from 1909 through 1911. Cubism is based on the simultaneous presentation of multiple views, disintegration, and the geometric reconstruction of objects in flattened, ambiguous pictorial so space; figure and ground merge into one interwoven surface of shifting planes. Color is limited to neutrals. By 1912 the more decorative phase called Synthetic (or Collage) Cubism, began to appear; it was characterized by fewer, more solid forms, conceptual rather than observed subject matter, and richer color and texture.
Considered one of the great turning points in Western art, it was originated by Picasso and Braque, who abandoned traditional notions of perspective and worked in a two-dimensional plane. Juan Gris joined the movement and later many other artists, including Léger, Metzinger, Kupka, to mention but a few. Cubism made a radical departure from the idea of art as the imitation of nature that had dominated European art since the Renaissance. The two most important influences on Cubism have been African sculpture and the later paintings of Cézanne. The forerunner of the new style was Picasso's celebrated picture of angular forms, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. Cubism's main formative period was circa 1907-1914 but continued to influence many different schools of 20th century art. Cubism, one of the principal sources for abstract art, was markedly adaptable to give birth to many other movements, for instance, Futurism.
A type of art developed in Paris at the beginning of the 20th century based on the simultaneous presentation of multiple views, disintegration and the geometric reconstruction of objects in flattened, ambiguous, pictorial space with figure and ground merged into one interwoven surface of shifting planes; Early 20th century French movement marked b a revolutionary departure from representational art. Examples-Pablo Picasso and Georges Bracque penetrated the surface of objects, stressing basic abstract geometric forms that presented the object from many angles simultaneously.
Art movement (c. 1908-1920) led by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque that took up Paul Cézanne’s search for the basic geometry, or structure, of nature’s forms in order to represent fully on a flat surface what the artist saw in three dimensions
A movement beginning with Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, inspired by African sculpture, Paul Cezanne, Georges Seurat and the Fauves. The subject matter is broken up, analyzed and reassembled in an abstract form.
The name given to the painting style invented by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque between 1906 and 1914. Cubists used multiple views of objects to create the effect of their three-dimensionality, while acknowledging the two-dimensional surface of the picture plane.
a style of representation that relies not on the depiction of things from a single viewpoint, but on a combination of different elements of the subject seen from a variety of different viewpoints, which results in an extremely fragmented appearance.
An abstract art movement of the early 20th century, initiated by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, paintings represent volume in a two dimensional plane without resorting to the illusion of depth as is usual within the picture space. Cubism is displayed long before the 20th century as seen in the art forms of Africa, Alaska and Oceania. Picasso was fond of the African arts and it is accepted that he was influenced by these earlier displays of "cubism" and built upon them to develop his art form.
A style of art developed in the early 20th century by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. Cubism uses geometric shapes to fragment and compose forms and to show objects from more than one view. En plein air French term for painting in nature, rather than in the studio.
A style of art pioneered in the early 20th century by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. In the most developed form of Cubism, forms are fragmented into planes or geometric facets, like the facets in a diamond; these planes are rearranged to foster a pictorial, but not naturalistic, reality; forms may be viewed simultaneously from several vantage points; figure and background have equal importance; and the colors are deliberately restricted to a range of neutrals.
An art style developed in 1908 by Picasso and Braque whereby the artist breaks down the natural forms of the subjects into geometric shapes and creates a new kind of pictorial space. In contrast to traditional painting styles where the perspective of subjects is fixed and complete, cubist work can portray the subject from multiple perspectives.
Art movement which took place in the early 20th century and was led by the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso and the French artist Georges Braque. The style of work produced by this movement is characterised by the aim of showing all sides of the subject matter depicted. This aim produced a geometric feel in the resultant images.
A style of painting created by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque in the early 20th century in which objects are portrayed as multifaceted solids that form superimposed, overlapped, and interlocked planes.
A nonobjective school of painting and sculpture developed in Paris in the early 20th century, characterized by the reduction and fragmentation of natural forms into abstract, often geometric structures usually rendered as a set of discrete planes. Practiced by many, including the Russian culture. Leading figures were Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso.
an influential style of visual art in the 20th century. Cubists reject traditional perspective and the time-honored theory that art is an imitation of nature. Instead they depict radically fragmented objects whose several sides are seen simultaneously.
A movement that began in French painting in the first decade of the 20th century, when Picasso and Braque started painting pictures in which all the shapes were reduced to straight lines and cubic volumes.
A style of painting that developed in Paris in the first decade of the twentieth century and which emphasizes abstract forms rather than realistic representation in painting and sculpture. Reacting to the tradition of realistic art, cubists painted the underlying geometric forms that they believed were the basis of natural forms. Cubist art often incorporated multiple perspectives, which many viewers found disorienting. Some of the foremost practitioners of Cubist art were Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, and Fernand Leger.
A school of painting and sculpture developed in Paris in the early 20 th century, tending through the geometrical reduction of natural forms to establish the work itself as a plastic fact independent of all imitative or representational intention. Leading figures: Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso.
Cubism was a term coined in 1908 by Louis Vauxcelles to describe the modern art of Picasso and Braque. These artists refuted traditional perspective and broke the planes of the composition into interlocking facets thereby fragmenting and disintegrating the image. Close
The movement that searched for basic geometric forms in nature, then took them apart followed by an imaginative reorganization of those elements in various contexts. Since Cubism was chiefly concerned with the liberation of form, colour played a subordinate role in Cubist art. Major Cubist achievements took place between 1907 and 1914.
Cubism was a 20th century avant-garde art movement that revolutionized Europe|European painting and sculpture, and inspired related movements in music and literature. In cubist artworks, objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted form — instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles presenting no coherent sense of depth.
