Cubism is modern art movement where artists represent the “total experience’ by showing multiple views simultaneously on the same canvas. Objects are broken down, analyzed and reassembled. Distinct characteristics of cubism include fragmented, geometric shapes, lack of depth, and multple viewpoints. Cubism revolutionized modern art and paved the way for many modern art movements.

Some fun facts:
-Picasso’s full name is Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso.
-Everyone knows Picasso was a talented painter, but he was also a well-known sculptor and draughtsman. In fact, he was quite secretive about his sculptures and did not release them to the public until the 1960’s.
-Bulls are a popular subject of many Spanish artists including Miro, Picasso and Dali.
Obviously we love this image found on Polli.
