under Kubismus one understands a style direction in the modern art, particularly in the painting, those at the beginning 20. Century their strongest development had. The Kubismus took oneTurning point in the painting and forms at the beginning of the abstract and not-material art.

The name „Kubismus “is a word creation of the art critic Louis Vauxcelles, which called the works Georges Braques 1908 „bizarreries cubiques “. The word Kubismus comes from Kubus, which means “cubes”. The Kubismus is occupied with the transition from gegenständlichen to abstract forms, for example ball, cones, cylinders or pyramid. 1907 and 1908 the first purely cubist works of Georges Braque developed independently and of Pablo Picasso, the Kubismus had his high point in the year 1914.

The Kubismus was a rebellion against the realistic painting late 19. and early 20. Century. Its central problem was the overcoming of the perspective, thosethe articles only from a point of view to seize is able. In contrast to this they tried to subdivide (analytic Kubismus) and a synthesis from different points of view create the article into different aspects (synthetic Kubismus). In the synthetic Kubismus (approximately starting from 1912) those strivePainter after the “dismantling” the “structure” of the article, however under keeping of the achieved liberty of the picture design. They develop now their pictures from few larger surfaces, with strict clear outlines and strengthen colors.
