Picasso - The Cubist
Inspired by Pablo Picasso
Painting with The Masters
22 x 22 Oil Painting on Canvas
Sold - Commission
This is a similar painting to one that I painted
and sold several years ago. The original was 12" x 16"
rectangle. This one is much larger 22" x 22" and
In this one the colors are much brighter
and I made subtle color changes as well. The ceiling
here looks a bit like a sky which I think adds more
movement than the original. (below)
I think I favor this one because it is in a larger
format so I was able to do a lot more detailing.
They seem to work out better the second time
"Picasso The Cubist"
The Cubist - Picasso 12 x 16 Original
During the early days of cubism historians attributed the creation of cubism to one man: Pablo Picasso. Now we know that he has to share to honor with Georges Braque. Braque had studied Cézanne's method of representing three dimensions as seen from several viewpoints. Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque soon became good friends and went on to develop the visual language of cubism in close cooperation, an alliance that Picasso would sometimes call a marriage. Analytical cubism lasted until 1911 and is characterized by monochrome, relatively unemotional paintings that depict rather uneventful subjects, such as still lives. Many paintings of analytical cubism are faceted a technique that allows the artist to disect and reconstruct his subject in a way that depicts its essence rather than its appearance. Although largely abstract, the faceted technique still produces a recognizable image of the subject.
The technique of faceting originated from Georges Braques - it was his way to depict a natural object. Picasso didn't so much facet natural objects, but used the geometry of Braques' faceted paintings to create a style that was abstract in essence, almost pure abstract art. So cubism refers to the styles of both Braques and Picasso, although Braques' cubism has a recognizable figurative objective, while Picasso's cubism served as the link between Braques' style and pure the abstract art that followed from cubism (such as Piet Mondrian and suprematism).
