Apogee of Cubism
Friendly grotesque on the subject of cubism by Pablo Picasso
Apogee (figuratively) - the highest point.
Cubism is an early-20th-century avant-garde art movement that
revolutionized European painting and sculpture, and inspired related movements
in architecture. Cubism has been considered the most influential art movement of
the 20th century.
The movement was pioneered by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. One primary
influence that led to Cubism was the representation of three-dimensional form in
the late works of Paul Cézanne. In Cubist artwork, objects are analyzed, broken
up and reassembled in an abstracted form - instead of
depicting objects from a single viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a
multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context.
