No one seemed to have any new ideas until Pablo and Georges gave us Analytical Cubism. The late nineteenth century was influenced by the Japanese tradition but synthetically I think.

I would be pleased to be corrected on my thinking.

Best wishes...

Impressionism was a set of new ideas way before Pablo.
"no no! You are doing it all wrong, in the internet we are supposed to be stubborn, inflexible and arrogant. One cannot simply be suddenly reasonable and reflexive in the internet, that breaks years of internet tradition as a medium of anger, arrogance, bigotry and self entitlement. Damm these internet newcomers being nice to to others!!!"
