Cubism: beauty in the abstract

And one day ... man created beautiful image through imperfect representation of reality. Originally equally loved and rejected today to recognize their contribution to human heritage. Cubism is an art style more to the story, is a gateway to a current vanguard that will never find its limits.

Thereafter, all avant-garde artistic movements were accompanied by critical texts that explained.
