The Cubist Cafe     Not For Sale
        Cubism has had a strong  influence on painting since
       the earliest 20th century.  By studying the techniques
       that the Cubists used, it is possible to really change
        the look of a painting.  Cubists used collage in their
       works to add texture.  Most importantly they "broke the   
       plane" so that we can "see" objects that are behind other      objects.  They also used repeating patterns in changing    scales and multiple views at the same time.   All of these
       methods keep us coming back again and again to see
       what we didn't see before.
