Cubism was an artistic movement that was born in France between 1907 and 1914. Pablo Ruiz Picasso was the first artist who uses this style. The term “cubism” was created by Louis Vaxcelles because he said that this style was composed of “little cubes”, and it started call cubism. 
Cubism is considered the first avant-garde because broke with renaissance at beginning of twentieth century. Perspective disappears in cubism and start painting geometric forms. Those works represents all sides of an object in the same plane, so it’s more difficult to see clearly a person or an animal. Now there is no single point of view, so sensation of distance disappears. Painters deleted details and used darker colors than they used in impressionism. 
Picasso and Braque founded cubism, but also there were other painters who were famous because of this kind of art. Like Albert Gleizes, Jean Metzinger, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger and André Lhote.
