CUBISM   KEY DATES: 1908-1914 The Cubist art movement began in Paris around 1907. Led by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque,   the Cubists broke from centuries of tradition in their painting by rejecting the single viewpoint. Instead   they used an analytical system in which three-dimensional subjects were fragmented and redefined   from several different points of view simultaneously. The movement was conceived as 'a new way of representing the world', and assimilated outside   influences, such as African art, as well as new theories on the nature of reality, such as Einstein's   Theory of Relativity.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
