One of Picassos most famous pieces from this time was Old Man and a Guitar, which was done with a dismal blue haze and very dull colors. The painting was of an old man hunched over playing a guitar. Since the painting had the blue haze over it seemed very dismal and one got a sense of pain and anguish through the old man.

Picassos blue period lasted almost four years and ended in 1904, which gave way to a totally new style from Picasso. As t ...

A Look At Picasso And Guernica - 1,117 words
Picasso's Guernica is unique and unlike any other photograph or painting of a historical war scene. Historical photographs show scenes and capture moments in time, but when viewing them an intangible "wall" exists between the viewer and the photograph. The difference between photographs and original paintings is that the painting allows the viewer to break through the "wall" and actually experience the feelings and emotions expressed in the painting. "We only see what we look at and to look is act of choice." ("Ways of Seeing" 8) "The photographer's way of seeing is reflected in his choice of subject, they are showing you what they want you to see." ("Ways of Seeing" 10) Photographs are take ...

In dealing with this image in one of his sketches he again strikes a personal cord with the people of Spain by putting the distraught mother in a familiar pose. "Picasso now isolate the mom and child as he had with the suffering horse, makes these figures more compact and ...

The play is an original work by Steve Martin with a running time of 90minutes, which feels more like 30minutes. Aside from the uncomfortable seating, this production is nothing short of wonderful.

Picassos Les Desmoiselles Davignon - 1,414 words
Though the backbone of art was formed by academies that graduated classical artists, some of the most influential artists broke away from such academies to change the rules. Impressionists, led by Claude Monet, formed a group of artists originally rejected from the academies to paint in their own "objective reality."

While they started the process of the transformation of art, Pablo Picasso advanced it many times over. Though classically trained, Picasso painted art by what views he saw in his head and im ...

I believe if that there ever was a generation as such it was the baby boomers; ever hear of Woodstock? They want to stereotype us and ignore to what we have to say. For some reason when we do what they did as teenagers we are bad but when they did it, it was experimenting. The problem I see with my generation is that no one takes us seriously.
