Transcript of Cubism

Cubism Cubism is an early 20th-century style and movement in art , in which perspective with a single viewpoint was abandoned and use was made of simple geometric
shapes, interlocking planes, and, later,
collage. "Cubism is like standing at a certain point on a mountain and looking around. If you go higher, things will look different; if you go lower, again they will look different. It is a point of view." ~Jacques Lipchitz Definition: Pablo Picasso

Some Examples of their Work: What is Cubism? Unlike traditional still-lifes, landscapes, or portrait paintings, Cubist paintings aren’t meant to be realistic or life-like.
