They painted art as sifted through their senses; taking into account the environment's affect on an object or placing the focus on everyday activity, the impressionists helped redefine art. 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 ...

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. With wrinkles, bare feet, and tattered clothes it was almost hard not to feel some sort of emotion from this painting. Picassos blue period lasted almost four years and ended in 1904, which gave way to a totally new style from Picasso. As t ...
