Cubism

To take part in the pictorial revolution of the turn of the 20th Century, the followers of Cubist painting, the most famous of whom were Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and Francis Picabia, proposed an art in which objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in abstracted form, devoid any coherent sense of depth.

Notably inspired by Paul Cézanne's writings on the manner of treating nature, cubism, whether in the analytical, synthetic, instinctive or other periods, was always interested in volumes, which it analyzed from top to bottom.

In works of cubism, often, the image seems broken up into geometrical shapes, as if there were a multiplicity of points of view. In a relatively short span of time, the Cubist movement gave rise to several movements with sometimes quite divergent ideas.
