about this item

Deconstructing perspective with Picasso and peers 
Pioneered by Picasso and Braque,Cubism was the first avant-garde art movement of the 20th century. Heavily influenced by the stark power of African and Native American art and sculpture, it deconstructed conventions of viewpoint and perspective, revolutionizing painting and western art in general. With its flattened, geometric shapes, overlapping, simplified forms and fragmented spatial planes, Cubism became one of the most influential and far-reaching movements in modern art. This book explains the history and theory behind Cubism, examining the work of its prime movers, and those whose work built upon it.
Featured artists: Pablo Picasso, Edmond Fortier, Paul Cézanne, George Braque, Henri Le Fauconnier, Jean Metzinger, Fernand Léger, Juan Gris, Albert Gleizes, Henri Laurens, Salvador Dalí, Brassaï, Robert Delaunay, Raymond Duchamp-Villon
