A revolutionary approach to visual representation invented in 1907–08 by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. In Cubist paintings and collages, motifs are fragmented and re-assembled, with multiple views coexisting within the same picture. This marked a radical break from the European tradition of creating a consistent spatial illusion from a fixed viewpoint. In addition to Picasso and Braque, early practitioners of Cubism included Fernand Léger, Juan Gris, and Jean Metzinger. Web resource here.
