Famous Cubist Painters - List of Famous Cubist Painters

French painter Georges Braque along with his colleague Pablo Picasso was the pioneering artist who led to the development of Cubism as a major art movement in the 20th century. Both the men, famed painters in their own rights, together created paintings of monochromatic color and complex patterns of faceted form, now termed Analytic Cubism. The impact of the Cubism movement was far-reaching and influenced young and emerging artists across the globe, especially in Europe. Painter and art theorist Jean Dominique Antony Metzinger collaborated with fellow painter Albert Gleizes to develop the theoretical foundations of Cubism. Their legacy was taken forward by the likes of Robert Delaunay, Henri Le Fauconnier, Fernand Léger and Juan Gris who further contributed to the growth and popularity of the movement. These major figures of early 20th century painting set the pace for the development of diverse art movements that drew from the tenets of Cubism. Jacques Villon helped organize the drawing section of the first Salon d'Automne in Paris, while his brother Henri-Robert-Marcel Duchamp was responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture of the 20th century. This section provides you information about the life and works of famous Cubist painters.
