Pablo Picasso is known the world over as one of the leading figures in twentieth century art. He co-founded the Cubist movement- an avant-garde art movement that revolutionized European painting and sculpture, and inspired related movements in music and literature. According to Wikipedia: "In cubist artworks, objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted form—instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create the shallow ambiguous space, one of cubism's distinct characteristics."
There are almost 4 dozen Picasso works in the Tate collection. Several of them are on display at Tate Modern.
