Description

Cubism was one of the most important and influential movements in twentieth-century art. In the eight years between 1906 and 1914, Cubism - Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque in particular - was to change the technique and form of painting, radically and for ever. Originating in Paris, the movement became a truly international force, and one with a profound impact on human visual experience. This book, illustrated with over 300 photographs, presents a vivid personal evocation of Cubism as a historic and aesthetic force.show more
