Fractured forms: Deconstructing perspective with Picasso and peers Pioneered by Picasso and Braque, Cubism has been described as the first avant-garde art movement of the 20th century. With inspiration from African and Native American art and sculpture, its practitioners deconstructed European conventions of viewpoint, form, perspective to create flattened, fragmented, and revolutionary images. Picasso s celebrated painting Demoiselles D'Avignon is typically regarded as the original cubist work, with its radical fracturing of objects and figures into distinct areas, corresponding to multiple different viewpoints. Cubism thereafter developed two distinct trends: Analytical Cubism, which continued to interweave perspectival planes in muted blacks, greys and ochre, and later Synthetic Cubism, characterised by simpler shapes, brighter colours, and collage elements such as newspaper. With work from artists including Pablo Picasso, George Braque, Fernand Leger, Juan Gris, Albert Gleizes, Salvador Dali, Brassai, and Robert Delaunay, this book presents the prime protagonists of Cubism, as well as those artists who built upon their trailblazing work.
