Cubist Art

Cubism is part of the genre of abstract art made famous by Picasso.  The term itself was coined by French art critic Louis Vauxcelle in reference to the landscapes painted by Georges Braque.  Cubist style art is generally constructed by breaking objects into two dimensional forms and realigning those elements using multiple, contrasting vantage points.  Picasso is said to have been inspired by African tribal masks. ‘A head’, said Picasso, ‘is a matter of eyes, nose, mouth, which can be distributed in any way you like’.
