Synopsis: In the world of art, Cubism was nothing less than revolutionary, representing a paradigm shift in the way artists perceived the world, and incontestably one of the most influential movements in art history. To celebrate the one-hundredth anniversary of Picasso?s seminal work Les Demoiselles d?Avigon, leading Picasso scholars and art historians assess its legacy and the extraordinary influence of Picasso?s Cubism on the development of twentieth-century art.
