Art Movement : CubismCubism : Cubism was an avant-garde art movement that revolutionized European painting and sculpture in the early 20th century. In cubist artworks objects are broken up, analyzed, and reassembled in an abstracted form - instead of rendering objects from a single fixed angle, the artist depicts the subject from multiple angles simultaneously as an attempt to present the subject in the most complete manner. Often the surfaces of the facets, or planes, intersect at angles that show no recognizable depth. The background and object (or figure) planes interpenetrate one another creating the ambiguous shallow space characteristic of cubism.
