or kubista: cubist : an artist who transforms natural shapes into exaggerated geometric ones. Pablo Picasso is the most famous of all cubist painters.Starting in the early 20th century, the art movement known as cubism began in Western Europe. Cubists attempted to show many perspectives at once in their work by breaking down their subjects into sections and then representing them as small, flat blocks. Cubist comes from cubism, which was coined after a French art critic dismissed their “bizarreries cubiques,” or “cubic oddities.”

Cubism: an early-20th-century avant-garde art movement that revolutionized European painting and sculpture, and inspired related movements in music, literature and architecture. Cubism has been considered the most influential art movement of the 20th century. The term is broadly used in association with a wide variety of art produced in Paris (Montmartre and Montparnasse) or near Paris (Puteaux) during the 1910s and throughout the 1920s.


quatrefoil: a decorative element consisting of a symmetrical shape which forms the overall outline of four partially overlapping circles of the same diameter. It is found in art, architecture, heraldry and traditional Christian symbolism. The word quatrefoil means “four leaves”, from Latin quattuor, four, plus folium, a leaf, referring specifically to a four-leafed clover, but applies in general to four-lobed shapes in various contexts. In recent years, a number of luxury brands have asserted copyright claims related to the symbol.
