After the war, Cubist painting became more varied, colorful, and accessible, and began to affect other media such as furniture, fashion, cinema and architecture. What had begun as a rarefied pictorial style became a popular language. The first essay addresses Picasso's abundant and varied cubist painting. The second essay treats the art of three major Cubists -- Picasso, Braque, and Leger -- in the context of the various cubist idioms that developed. The third essay, also broad in scope, examines the significant relationship between Cubism and the decorative arts in France.
