In terms of 20th century art, and the movements that occurred over this period,.. is probably the most important figure of the period.. To say that Pablo Picasso conquered western art is, by today, the merest usual place.. Before the age of 50, the Spanish born artist had become the most well known name in modern art, with the most distinct style and eye for artistic creation.. There had been no other artists, prior to Picasso, who had such an impact on the art world, or had a mass following of fans and critics alike, as he did.. Pablo Picasso was born in Magala, Span, in 1881, and had created a mass collection of works during the extensive course of his career.. In fact, by the time he died in France, in 1973, over 22,000 pieces of his work had been found.. These pieces included paintings, sculpture work, and a series of graphic design work which he had created over the course of his career.. Over the extensive career, Picasso had a hand in every art form and movement that came through, during the 20th century.. Not only that, he also co-founded cubism, which was one of the most popular movements during the 20th century, and was what he was most well known for with most of the works he created.. At the age of 15, Picasso was allowed to enroll in the advanced class of art, at the Royal Academy of Art, located in Barcelona.. The creative style, and distinct art form he created, was seen in may of his early pieces, including.. The Old Woman.. , which was a 1901 piece.. For a majority of his life, Picasso lived in France; in fact, he moved to Paris in 1904, where he remained until 1947, and made the move to Southern France.. The waves of creation for Picasso's work, are described as different perionds.. From 1901-1904, the.. , he created images which depicted a poor world.. Much of the work was  ...   ending war, and a condemnation on fascism in general.. The series that followed this piece, and profits earner from this "war" piece, were given to help in the Republican movement during the 1930s.. was not only a practical report or painting but also stays as a highly powerful political picture in modern art, rivaled by certain Mexican paintings of.. Diego Rivera.. Comical and fantasy were the types of work that Picasso focused on, as his career moved forward, and as he drew closer to the end of his career.. Graphic arts, ceramics, and sculpture work, were the methods that he drew on most, as opposed to painting and etched works, which were the predominant choices early on in his career.. During this time, he produced thousands of stage designs, illustrations, and a series of drawings, which represented these themes, and distinct styles which he was focusing on during this period of his life.. During this time, Picasso also focused on creating variations on different pieces, that were first created by other famous artists.. Some of the works were initially created by Velazquez, and he also redesigned works which were initially introduced by Delacroix to the art world.. Some of the most notable works he did during the end of his career, include.. The Rape of the Sabine Women.. and.. Naked Woman on the beach and Shovel.. Many of these pieces are still influential in the art world today; and, in fact, due to the vision and distinct creative style, are still among some of the most innovative pieces which have been introduced to the art world, even during recent years.. Although much of the work he created later in his career, were representative of a change in style, and new art form to follow, Pablo Picasso always created with a sense of vigor, and his own distinct style, regardless of what other artists were doing.. His passion, and distinct style, along with the fact that he created pieces that were well ahead of his time, are some of the reasons why he is still regarded as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, and by many, the greatest artists throughout history.. Not only did he introduce a series of works during his illustrious career, he is also the first artist to take a step towards modern art, and to have a hand in all of the art movements that followed him during the 20th century in the art world..

  • Title: La Vie, 1903 by Pablo Picasso
    Descriptive info: La Vie, 1903 by Pablo Picasso.. For all the countless works of art created over hundreds of years, only a select few have the power to thoroughly mesmerize, confound, and psychologically challenge the observer.. Even fewer have the ability to temporarily divorce everyone from their firmly-held artistic preferences and transcend personal biases.. They stand on their own merits, as independent artistic entities.. Picasso's 1903 Blue Period masterpiece.. La Vie.. is one such rarity.. Pablo Picasso never intended for the world to have a clear understanding of the painting "La Vie", now one of the treasured possessions of the.. Cleveland Museum of Art.. As the artist once told author Antonina Vallentin, "A painting, for me, speaks by itself, what good does it do, after all, to impart explanations? A painter has only one language, as for the rest.. " Picasso reportedly finished the sentence with a shrug.. What we do know, at least, are the tragic circumstances which brought about Picasso's legendary Blue Period.. Born in Málaga, Picasso studied art in both Barcelona and at the Royal Academy of San Fernando in Madrid.. He met another art student, a young Catalan named Carlos Casagemas.. The two became the best of friends, and together they traveled to Paris in the summer of 1900.. Inseparable, Pablo and Carlos immersed themselves in the Paris scene, although they had to survive with severely limited means.. Broke most of the time, they got by any way they could.. Without money for prostitutes, Picasso painted murals on the brothel walls as "payment" in exchange for their services.. Unlike Picasso, Casagemas was not a frequent patron  ...   L'Hippodrome Cafe with Germaine and several other friends.. Suddenly, he pulled a revolver from his jacket and fired a shot at Germaine, who avoided the bullet by ducking under the table.. Casagemas then put the gun to his right temple and fired another shot into his head.. Upon hearing word of his friend's very public, very violent suicide, a grief-stricken Picasso was thrust into a depression, further exacerbated by profound feelings of guilt for having abandoned Casagemas during his darkest hours.. On the outs with his own family, penniless, and disillusioned, Picasso tackled his emotional turmoil and angst in the way he knew best - with tubes of paint.. Blue paint.. A melancholy, monochromatic palette.. Moods of despair, sorrow, and isolation.. Subjects marked by pathos and misfortune.. From the brush of a gifted 20 year-old, at the dawn of the 20th century, on the heels of a harrowing trauma, the iconic Blue Period was born.. The painting is complicated and puzzling.. Its inscrutable qualities have added greatly to its reputation.. The male figure represents Casagemas, and notice how Picasso made his left leg taking a step forward, and his left finger making a pointing gesture.. Picasso, in other words, made his friend "active".. Undefeated, maybe? Picasso also gave him sexual love, with a devoted female nude figure leaning close against him.. And Picasso also placed Casagemas with a family unit, the maternal love of a mother and baby.. But perhaps most telling about this painting - perhaps Picasso's most revealing statement of what he was trying to communicate - is found in the painting title itself: "La Vie".. "Life"..

  • Title: The Old Guitarist by Pablo Picasso
    Descriptive info: The Old Guitarist, 1903 by Pablo Picasso.. The Old Guitarist.. was painted in 1903, just after the suicide death of Picasso's close friend, Casagemas.. During this time, the artist was sympathetic to the plight of the downtrodden and painted many canvases depicting the miseries of the poor, the ill, and those cast out of society.. He too knew what it was like to be impoverished, having been nearly penniless during all of 1902.. This work was created in Madrid, and the distorted style (note that the upper torso of the guitarist seems to be reclining, while the bottom half appears to be sitting cross-legged) is reminiscent of the works of.. This bent and sightless man holds close to him a large, round guitar.. Its brown body represents the painting s only shift in color.. Both physically and symbolically, the instrument fills the space around the solitary figure, who seems oblivious to his blindness and poverty as he plays.. At the time the painting was made, literature of the Symbolist movement included blind characters who possessed powers  ...   This information gives us a better understanding of Picasso's artistic process.. A perfect companion piece is Wallace Stevens's poem, "The Man with the Blue Guitar.. " The poet puts words to Picasso's belief that art is the lie to help us see the truth.. Stevens writes: "They said, 'You have a blue guitar, / You do not play things as they are.. ' / The man replied, 'Things as they are / Are changed upon the blue guitar.. '" As a metaphor for the need to immerse oneself fully in one's grief in order to heal, Denise Levertov's poem, Talking to Grief is also apropos.. The painting is also notable for the ghostly presence of a mysterious image painted underneath.. It is very likely that Picasso originally started painting a portrait of a woman, who appears to possibly be seated, and in an upset or worried mood.. Not much of this image is visible except for her face and legs.. This painting is now located at.. Art Institute of Chicago.. in the Helen Birch Bartlett Memorial Collection..

  • Title: Seated Woman, 1937 by Pablo Picasso
    Descriptive info: Saltimbanques (The Family of Saltimbanques), 1905 by Picasso.. This picture is usually seen as the dominant composition of Picasso's Rose Period - the conclusion of developing style, colouring and themes to date.. A massive canvas, in fact the largest that Picasso ever worked on at 212.. 8x229.. 6cm, (7x8 ft), it was the outcome of several preliminary studies, including elements taken from.. Young Acrobat on a Ball.. (1905).. The background was originally a racecourse until Picasso created this barren landscape, which is reminiscent of his birthplace in Andalucia, southern Spain.. The circus troupe is assembled as if departing, both literally and metaphorically, in terms  ...   at the age of seven affected Picasso deeply.. He bargained that he would never paint again if she survived, so her death created his first obsessive, recurrent connection between art, life and death in his work.. The paunchy jester is the Symbolist Apollinaire, and the older boy-acrobat is either the poet Max Jacob or the poet Andre Salmon.. Picasso's lover of the time, Fernande, is probably the woman strangely separated from the group.. The fresco-like colours create the haunting mood of this deserted landscape, a dislocated pastoral scene emptied of life except for the figures, and also oddly separated from the traditional 'big-top' setting..

  • Title: Boy with a Pipe by Pablo Picasso
    Descriptive info: Boy with a Pipe, 1905 by Pablo Picasso.. This paintings was painted in 1905 when Picasso was 24 years old, during his.. , soon after he settled in the Montmartre section of Paris, France.. The oil on canvas painting depicts a Parisian boy holding a pipe in his left hand and wearing a garland or wreath of flowers.. Early preparations of this work involved positioning the boy in all types of poses that involved standing, sitting or leaning against the wall.. After much repositioning of the model, Picasso decided to go with the boy sitting down.. Next was how to position the arm, where much time was also spent on the height and angle.. Early works do not show any objects other than a pipe being used.. Although Picasso started to paint this picture, he gave it a rest period for about a month.. During this time, Picasso decided to finish it off by placing a garland of flowers on the boy's head.. Le Bateau-Lavoir in Montmartre is where Picasso was living when he painted the picture.. Some of the local people made a living in the entertainment industry, such as being clowns or acrobats.. Picasso used many local people in his pictures, but little is known about  ...   did not really know the boy.. The painting was first bought by John Hay Whitney in 1950 for US$30,000.. On May 5, 2004 the painting was sold for US$104,168,000 at Sotheby's auction in New York City.. Sotheby s did not name the buyer though sources say that it was Guido Barilla, owner of the Barilla Group.. At the time, it broke the record for the amount paid for an auctioned painting (when inflation is ignored).. The amount, US$104 million, includes the auction price of US$93 million plus the auction house s commission of about US$11 million.. The painting was given a pre-sale estimate of US$70 million by the auction house.. Many art critics have stated that the painting's high sale price has much more to do with the artist's name than with the merit or historical importance of the painting.. The Washington Post's article on the sale contained the following characterisation of the reaction:.. Picasso expert Pepe Karmel, reached in New York the morning after the sale, was waxing wroth about the whole affair.. "I'm stunned," he said, "that a pleasant, minor painting could command a price appropriate to a real masterwork by Picasso.. This just shows how much the marketplace is divorced from the true values of art..

  • Title: Boy Leading a Horse, 1906 by Pablo Picasso
    Descriptive info: Boy Leading a Horse, 1906 by Pablo Picasso.. Boy Leading a Horse.. is yet another masterpiece critics praise without trying to explain.. Either they believe it has no meaning or that explaining it is impossible.. That is no reason not to try.. The more difficult an image is to interpret, the more you will experience aesthetic satisfaction when you do start to understand it.. Richardson searched for Picasso's sources but gave up, calling the picture "derivative.. " The painting, though, must mean something; all masterpieces do and it is our job to figure them out.. Sources, as always, are key.. The two figures - horse and boy - first appeared as a sketch for a much larger masterpiece that was never finished.. No expert seems to have noticed that the horse in the picture under discussion is derived from Mantegna's.. Parnassus.. in the Louvre.. Parnassus was the mythic home of the arts.. Hermes and Pegasus, the winged horse, are in the right foreground of Mantegna's image (far left) rather like a  ...   attention to "the power of the artist's hand".. His fist is empty because the reins are missing, a mystifying element for scholars.. The reins are probably missing because the horse is not really a horse.. It is an avatar for a fellow-Spaniard Velazquez.. Not only is the boy's bent arm somewhat like a painter's holding a palette but the horse's mane resembles one side of Velazquez's long hair in.. Las Meninas.. , the summit of Spanish painting.. Supporting evidence is the.. letter V.. for.. V.. elazquez formed from shading on the horse's chest above the boy's "laureate gesture".. The hand symbolizes art's craft and Picasso's solidarity with past genius.. This also makes sense of the red spot by the horse's mouth.. Difficult to explain naturally, it probably refers to the circular red rosette of the Légion d'Honneur, France's highest honor once awarded to Ingres and Manet and comparable to the gold chains conferred upon Renaissance masters like Michelangelo and Titian.. Velazquez proudly displays his own red Order of Santiago in Las Meninas..

  • Title: Les Demoiselles d'Avignon by Pablo Picasso
    Descriptive info: Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, 1907 by Pablo Picasso.. This paintings was painted in 1907.. It was called the most innovative painting since the work of Giotto, when.. first appeared it was as if the art world had collapsed.. Known form and respresnetation were completely abandon.. The reductionism and contortion of space in the painiting was incredible, and dislocation of faces explosive.. Like any revolution, the shock waves reverbetrated and the inevitable outcome was Cubism.. This large work, which took nine months to complete, exposes the true genius and novelty of Picasso's passion.. Suddenly he found freedom of expression away from current and classical French influences and was able to carve his own path.. Picasso created hundreds of sketches and studies in preparation for the final work.. It was painted in Paris during the summer of 1907.. Demoiselles was revolutionary and controversial, and led to anger and disagreement amongst his closest associates and friends.. Picasso long acknowledged the importance of Spanish art and Iberian sculpture as influences on the painting.. Demoiselles is believed by critics to be influenced by African tribal masks and the art of Oceania, although Picasso denied the connection; many art historians remain skeptical about his denials.. Several experts maintain that,  ...   Her head is the most cubist of all five, featuring sharp geometric shapes.. The cubist head of the crouching figure underwent at least two revisions from an Iberian figure to its current state.. Much of the critical debate that has taken place over the years centers on attempting to account for this multiplicity of styles within the work.. The dominant understanding for over five decades, espoused most notably by Alfred Barr, the first director of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and organizer of major career retrospectives for the artist, has been that it can be interpreted as evidence of a transitional period in Picasso's art, an effort to connect his earlier work to Cubism, the style he would help invent and develop over the next five or six years.. The Museum of Modern Art.. in New York City mounted an important Picasso exhibition on November 15, 1939 that remained on view until January 7, 1940.. The exhibition entitled: Picasso:40 Years of His Art, was organized by Alfred H.. Barr (1902 1981), in collaboration with the Art Institute of Chicago.. The exhibition contained 344 works, including the major and then newly painted.. and its studies, as well as.. Les Demoiselles..

  • Title: Ma Jolie, 1911-1912 by Pablo Picasso
    Descriptive info: Ma Jolie, 1911-1912 by Pablo Picasso.. Ma jolie.. (My pretty girl) was the refrain of a popular song performed at a Parisian music hall Picasso frequented.. The artist suggests this musical association by situating a treble clef and music staff near the bold, stenciled letters.. Ma jolie was also Picasso's nickname for his lover Marcelle Humbert, whose figure he loosely built using the signature shifting planes of Analytic Cubism.. This is far from a traditional portrait of an artist's beloved, but there are clues to its representational content.. A triangular form in the lower center is strung like a  ...   be a floating smile is barely discernable amid the network of flat, semitransparent planes.. So although the figure appears to disappear into an abstract network of flat, straightedged semitransparent planes, together these elements suggest a woman holding a musical instrument.. Thus it manages to be both a representative piece of high Analytic Cubism, while at the same time representing a very traditional theme.. In Cubist works of this period, Picasso and.. employed multiple modes of representation simultaneously: here, Picasso combined language (in the black lettering), symbolic meaning (in the treble clef), and near abstraction (in the depiction of his subject)..

  • Title: Three Musicians by Pablo Picasso
    Descriptive info: Three Musicians, 1921 by Pablo Picasso.. This celebrated work, now in the New York Museum of Modern Art, is part of series painted while was with his young family in the Fontaineblueau in the summer of 1921.. It marks a return to high Synthetic Cubism and his enduring Commedia dellArte imaginary, commenced in the early days in Paris.. His continuing association with the refined world of ballet, through his wife and through his work designing sets and costumes for Diaghilev, is evident throughout.. Three Musicians.. is a large painting measuring more than 2 meters wide and high.. It is painted in the style of Synthetic Cubism and gives the appearance of cut paper.. Picasso paints three musicians made of flat, brightly colored, abstract shapes in a shallow, boxlike room.. On the left is a clarinet player, in the middle a guitar player, and on the right a singer holding sheets of music.. They are dressed as familiar figures: Pierrot, wearing a blue and white suit; Harlequinn, in an orange and yellow diamond-pattered custome; and, at right, a friar in a black robe.. In front of Pierrot stands a table with a pipe and other objects,  ...   make the room lopsided, but the musicians seem steady.. Music Makers in Harmony; It is hard to tell where one musician starts and another stops, because the shapes that create them intersect and overlap, as if they were paper cutouts.. Pierrot, the figure in blue and white, holds a clarinet in his hands; one hand is connected to a long, thin, black arm, while the other hand lacks an arm.. Three Musicians emphasizes lively colors, angular shapes, and flat patterns.. Picasso said he was delighted when "Gertrude Stein joyfully announced.. that she had at last understood what.. the three musicians was meant to be.. It was a still life!".. is an example of Picasso's Cubist style.. In Cubism, the subject of the artwork is transformed into a sequence of planes, lines, and arcs.. Cubism has been described as an intellectual style because the artists analyzed the shapes of their subjects and reinvented them on the canvas.. The viewer must reconstruct the subject and space of the work by comparing the different shapes and forms to determine what each one represents.. Through this process, the viewer participates with the artist in making the artwork make sense..

The rounded monumental figures of Picasso's f neo-Classical period of the early 1920s sees a return to his 1992 painting.. Two Women Running on the Beach.. , with all its traditional religious connotations.. Neo-Classicism originally applies to the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century revival of Classical motifs, subjects and decorations, with the inspiration coming from the 1748 excavations of Pompeii and writings of the German archaeologist, Wincklemann.. Picasso visited Pompeii and some Italian museums of Classical art in 1917, and their influence began to assert itself in this post-war series of colossal figures.. A general reaction  ...   here are anchored in the elongated brown limbs, contorted yet supple.. There's a sense of fullness that makes you feel that this is how life must be lived - and war must be abandoned.. It's a known fact that the women in Picasso's paintings are the women who inhabited his life at various times.. His works are littered with references to artist model Amelie Lang, Eva Gouel, ballerina Olga Khokhlova, Marie-Thérèse Walter, surrealist photographer Dora Maar, art student Françoise Gilot, Genevieve Laporte and Jacqueline Roque.. They gave of themselves to his art and his work is revealing of their personalities and the kind of relationship he had with each..
