Picassos epiphanyAfter Picasso had experienced the work of African artists specifically masks and sculptures his work became more simplified and angular. This was the start of the Cubism movement.
Picasso had a vision regarding what he wanted to represent through art with his new ideas. His goals included the following:
The goals of Cubism include:Getting as close to reality as possible by representing a real, natural object on a flat canvas by showing every side of the object.Taking each point of view and emphasizing the geometric shapes by spreading all of these points out on a canvas.Unfolding an image.EXAMPLE: Three Musicians, 1921As Cubism developed, Picasso began to combine several points of view of an object and to overlap them this led to some images becoming almost unrecognizable.
