Picasso, Braque, Léger and the International Language of Cubism
07/03/2013 - 30/06/2013
From 7 March to 30 June 2013, the Vittoriano in Rome will host the show Picasso, Braque, Léger and the International Language of Cubism, paying homage to the most important avant-garde artistic movement of the 20th century.
This movement, which does not have an true founder and does not have any special guidelines, finds its key proponents in the Spanish Pablo Picasso with his lithographs, paintings and sculptures and the French Georges Braque and Joseph Fernand Henri Legér.
The term “cubism” was randomly created when Matisse, observing some of Braque’s works composed of "small cubes" in 1908, criticized the pieces and then Louis Vauxcelles called them “weird cubes” the following year.
The show displays the lithographs, paintings and sculptures of Pablo Picasso, the sculptures and paintings of Braque and the paintings of Legér from the most important public and private collections in the world.
