The Cubist art movement will forever loom over the era of modern art. The movement lasted approximately eighteen years, and existed around the time of Fauvism and Expressionism. Cubism consisted of a desire to deny the work of their art predecessors in a way that would disvalue their meanings and intentions. The movement's most significant members: Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, and Juan Gris each developed certain styles that worked to achieve their purpose. The Cubist art period represented a new and dramatic change in art history. Since the time of the Renaissance, no other art period had been so well known by the lay-people as Cubism. And possibly, no other movement has enjoyed their success and influence since.
