Cubism is one of the periods in the art history where objects of the painting were simplified and was most influential styles of the early twentieth century.
Artists broke up objects into a multitude of pieces and then reassembled them in sharp angles & geometric shapes. Objects are shown from multiple viewpoints. This style of art was created by Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881–1973) and Georges Braque (French, 1882–1963) in Paris between 1907 and 1914.
Students of tenth grade created compositions in cubism where the topic was of their choice. It was nice to see students coming up with interesting compositions. They could adapt the style and create artwork.
