How did Cubism start?

Cubism started in Paris (France) in the early 20th Century, when Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque started to cooperate very closely by visiting their ateliers daily and exchanging all their ideas and new visual inventions in the years 1907 - 1914. Appolinaire became soon the art critic who connected himself to Cubism and published a lot in those years.

Then Braque had to join the French army in World War 1 (Picasso was not French!) and was severely injured in 1915. He recovered but was also changed a lot in his personality; their close relationship in making Cubist art was ended by then.

See the quotes by Picasso and Braque.

"Almost every evening ( around 1908, fh), either I went to Braque's studio or Braque came to mine. Each of us had to see what the other had done during the day. We criticized each other's work (a remark Picasso told Francoise Gilot already in December 1908)"

from "Futurism", ed. By Didier Ottinger; Centre Pompidou / 5 Continents Editions, Milan, 2008, p. 311, note 721 (art quotes, Pablo Picasso)

"At that time (around 1907/08) I was very friendly with Picasso. Our temperaments were very different, but we had the same idea. Later on it became clear, Picasso is Spanish and I am French; as everyone knows that mean a lot of differences, but during those days the differences did not count… …We were living in Montmarte, we used to meet every day, we used to talk… …In those years Picasso and I said things to each other that nobody will ever say again, that nobody could say any more… …It was rather like a pair of climbers roped together."

from a conversation with Dora Vallier, 1954; as quoted in "Letters of the great artists - from Ghiberti to Gainsborough -", Richard Friedenthal, Thames and Hudson , London, 1963

Picasso and Braques both were looking for a way to show different viewpoints on a two dimensional surface.

What inspired Pablo Picasso to paint cubism?

Pablo Picasso was inspired by Paul Cezanne's The Great Bathers (1898-1906) of the Post-Impressionist era, which featured geometric structuring and glimpses of bare canvas to remind the audience that they are only looking at a canvas with paint, not a window into a realistic view, or picture plane. Picasso's use of geometry and emphasis on reminding viewers of the 2-D surface in his Analytic Cubist works, such as the one depicted in Portrait of Ambroise Vollard (1910), were based off of Cezanne's art.

Why did Picasso create Cubism?

Picasso thought: paintings are flat, sculptures are 3-dimensional. Why cannot paintings be made to see things from different directions? 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.
