6 Cubists:

Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger, Marcel Duchamp, Robert Delaunay

"Cubism, one of the most influential visual art styles of the early twentieth century, was created by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque in Paris between 1907 and 1914. The French art critic Louis Vauxcelles coined the term Cubism after seeing the landscapes Braque had painted in 1908 at L’Estaque in emulation of Cézanne. Vauxcelles called the geometric forms in the highly abstracted works “cubes.”  src
