'; ABSTRACT – Tonia Prevena

  ABSTRACT

The first truly abstract paintings were developed by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque in Paris between 1912 and 1914. Called Cubism, the movement was a new way of merging objects and figures into geometric planes. Picasso and Braque developed new methods, introducing real elements such as newspapers into their paintings by sticking them directly onto the surface. This became known as collage and is now a recognised artistic process.
