Variations on the Cube: Cubism’s Legacy

"Many consider the invention of Cubism by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso to be the most important artistic invention of the twentieth century. Its influence was felt around the globe in the decades that followed, creating an explosion of innovation and creativity in visual art that was embodied in the work of individuals such as Robert Delaunay, Sonia Delaunay, Marcel Duchamp, and František Kupka, as well as groups such as the Russian Constructivists and Suprematists." -source
