Cubism was a movement that wanted to show all the angles of an object. Cubism was made to reject all past ideas of perspective and space.
French painter Paul Cezanne was said to have been a major influence in the Cubist works created by Picasso and Braque when cubism was being born. Cezanne’s simple and flattened forms most likely lead Picasso and Braque to take this art form to an all new movement of modern art.
