For the first time an exhibition explores a creative partnership unequaled in the history of art- the exchange between Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque that led to Cubism, the most influential art movement of this century. Like "mountain climbers roped together" Braque and Picasso defined the concepts of Cubism. Fundamental differences in technique, vision and temperament fueled their joint exploration. Inventive in the use of materials and textures, they are often disconcerting images. Cubism virtually transformed all the visual arts, and remains what most of us still think as "modern art."
