Is Cubism at the heart of all contemporary painting?

I have always considered Cubism to be the key movement in the development of contemporary art. I see it as the ultimate catalyst, a clean break with past traditions and a revolutionary way of seeing, interpreting and reconstructing the material world through painting. After Cubism, there could be no return to the false comforts and certainties of representational painting, Cubism fatally undermined conventional ways of recording what we see; for the first time, the supremacy of renaissance perspective was critically challenged and the notion of single point perspective recognised as an artificial construct, no more than an artful solution, a tenuous connection to how we actually see and apprehend what is before our eyes.

Cubism informed us that we were not the centre of the universe, with rays of light travelling in predetermined straight lines from object to eye. On the contrary, we remain as we always have been, inconsequential and peripheral to the laws of science and physics, part of the endless flow of light across space and time, neither the final arbiters or final recipients. Cubism taught us that we are essentially stateless and without status, but the world is not static and the concept of multiple viewpoints exploded the myth of illusionistic representation. Einstein said that “Cubism put an end to the laziness or fatigue of vision. Seeing had again become an active process” (Einstein, Die Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts [1931]
