Cubist Inspired Portraits “Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth” - Pablo Picasso
Cubism! Cubism was one of the most influential visual art styles of the early twentieth century. Created by Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881–1973) and Georges Braque (French, 1882–1963) in Paris between 1907 and 1914. The Cubist painters rejected the inherited concept that art should copy nature, or that they should adopt the traditional techniques of perspective, modeling, and foreshortening. They simplified objects into geometric forms. They used multiple or contrasting view points. Cubism later initiated surrealism and other abstract art forms
