Cubism and Abstract art diagram; based on Barr's book cover design.

Web Designing Magazine selected this diagram for its feature article on Infographics. Various top Information designers around the world were asked to contribute. See article and additional samples on page 079 of Web Designing Volume 4, 2007.

The diagram is influenced by Alfred H. Barr, Jr.’s Cubism and Abstract Art book jacket design. Missing from the Barr's chart is a section for the art style Divisionism; it would be place before the art movement Futurism.

The chart is not comprehensive and omits some critical connections; for example, Van Gogh name would be nested, or in close proximity, to Neo-Impressionism, with a dash of Divisionism, yet Synthetism also influenced Van Gogh during the latter part of his life.
