"Every age projects its own image in its arts" In the twentieth century, several different types of artistic periods emerged. Along with Dadaism, Surrealism, and Abstract Expressionism, Cubism was one of the prominent artistic styles. Cubism breaks the objects within the picture into numerous geometric shapes and planes. As one of the most influential artistic periods in the twentieth century, Cubism began with Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque between 1907 and 1914. Instead of painting the picture to be three-dimensional, Cubists focused on making it two-dimensional. The painters that are in this gallery are Paul Klee and Juan Gris.
