Cubism: (1908 - 1920) The Cubist emphasized a flat, two-dimensional surface and rejected the idea that art should imitate  nature, refusing traditional techniques such as perspective, foreshortening, modeling, and chiaroscuro.  Spanish painter, Pablo Picasso and French artist Georges Braques in Paris founded the movement before  World War I. The movement is considered to have its roots in the work of Post-Impressionist, Paul  Cezanne. It also took from African tribal art, reducing everything to cubes and other geometrical forms.  Cubist artists depicted drastically fragmented objects, sometimes showing multiple sides simultaneously.  Cubism was the forerunner of abstract art.
