Pablo Picasso, one of the most famous artists of the 1900s, is best-known for co-founding cubism with Georges Braque. This still life incorporates the cubist aim of representing the world from multiple viewpoints. While the image initially appears to be an abstract mixture of colors and shapes, one can come to understand the image—and other Cubist works—by breaking it down and analyzing its parts.
