Cubism was one of the most important art styles in the West this century. It started when Picasso and Braque tried new ideas in Paris between 1906 and 1908. It quickly gained popularity and spread to the rest of Europe and the United States. The movement’s rejection of realistic representation favouring a visual language that could stand independently led to abstraction.
The Cubists also came up with papier colle, collage, and a new way to make art, all still being used today. This book has a lot of information about all of these changes. It is a great way to learn about Cubism because it has 48 full-page colour plates, comments, and black-and-white pictures of similar works. Philip Cooper examines the contemporary cultural background of the artists (and writers) who contributed to Cubism. He gives an account of the emergence and development of this movement and explores its various aspects and phases, such as analytical Cubism and synthetic Cubism.
