The invention of Cubism was a joint effort between Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, then residents of Montmartre, Paris. These artists were the movement's main innovators.
After meeting in October or November 1907, Braque and Picasso, in particular, began working on the development of Cubism in 1908. Both artists produced paintings of monochromatic color and complex patterns of faceted form, now called Analytic Cubism.
Georges Braquewas born in Argenteuil, Val-d'Oise. He grew up in Le Havre and trained to be a house painter and decorator like his father and grandfather.
Picasso was a Spanish painter, draughtsman, and sculptor. He is one of the most recognized figures in 20th-century art.
He is best known for co-founding the Cubist movement and for the wide variety of styles embodied in his work. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907) and Guernica (1937), his portrayal of the German bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War.
With cubism you can have one thing very well recognized but still have the viewer think of there own ideas to go into the painting and having a more personal feel to this piece of work,
