Following this salon Metzinger writes his important Note sur la peinture article (published in Pan (Paris), October–November 1910), depicting the new art movement of Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Robert Delaunay and Henri Le Fauconnier, noting that these artists (himself included) "discarded traditional perspective and granted themselves the liberty of moving around objects." This is the Cubist concept of "mobile perspective" that would tend towards the representation of the "total image" (an object seen from various view-points simultaneously).
