Which are the most famous Cubist paintings?


Which are the most famous Cubist paintings? Cubism is a style of modern art (the art of the 20th century) whose most famous representative was Pablo Picasso. A very few people even heard of the Cubism, and even fewer can name one painting. Only the hardcore lovers of art could name them. It was founded by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, which were alongside Juan Gris, the most famous artist of the Cubism and they dominate in this style of art. Cubism was, according to Juan Gris, the art that “radically destroyed traditional illusionism in painting, revolutionized the way we see the world (as Juan Gris, one of three most famous cubist artists, said), and paved the way for the pure abstraction that dominated Western art for the next 50 years”.

The movement, among the 3 artists we mentioned above, had other notable artists whose paintings were very important for the Cubism movement like Andre Lhote, Albert Gleizes, Robert Delaunay, Henri Le Fauconnier, Fernand Léger etc. These are, alongside the 3 famous ones, very talented artists who painted some amazing paintings, so you can imagine how hard is it to separate those who are the best of them, especially if you take into a consideration that everyone experiences the art differently and individually.
