In Modern Times

Exploring the expanding impact of cubism through works in the collection.

Cubism was a hugely influential art movement that started in Paris in the early years of the twentieth century. It saw artists putting aside established ways of seeing, breaking up the picture plane, removing perspective and reducing subject matter to a series of flattened, layered geometric shapes. This exhibition explores the impact of cubism through works in the collection.
