Cubism is.. a more modern art movement in which forms are abstracted by using an analytical approach to the object & painting the basic geometric solid of the subject.
Cubist Style.. emphasized the flat, two-dimensional surface of the picture plane, rejecting the traditional techniques of perspective, foreshortening, modeling, and chiaroscuro and refuting time- honored theories of art as the imitation of nature.
Cubist painters.. were not bound to copying form, texture, color, and space; instead, they presented a new reality in paintings that depicted radically fragmented objects, whose several sides were seen simultaneously.
Analytical Cubism is.. where objects are fragmented & displayed from several different angles at once
Synthetic Cubism.. is where artists reconstructed the space & display of their works with fragmented forms
Where it started.. Cubism started in France. Analytical & Synthetic also started in France.
