While the names of many of his later periods are debated, the most commonly accepted periods in his work are the Blue Period (1901–1904), the Rose Period (1905–1907), the African-influenced Period (1908–1909), Analytic Cubism (1909–1912), and Synthetic Cubism (1912–1919). The art during the Blue period used shades of blue and grey that were rarely joined by other colors. The Rose period is a more cheery era in Picasso’s art. He used more orange and pink colors and often times painted characters like circus performers, acrobats, and harlequins. During his African-influenced period, Picasso painted his great work Les Demoiselles d'Avignon which was influenced by African artifacts.
This combination of analytical and synthetic cubism reflects Picasso’s interest in ideas perception and reality in painting. Picasso introduced Analytical Cubism into the art world during 1908 to 1912 as the early phases of cubism. It is recognisable by its use of geometric shapes being abstracted and distorted to show multiple viewpoints which is clearly shown in the artwork “Still Life with a Cane Chair”. Doing this explores reality closer to truth as you visually grasp many angles rather than just one. When we see an object in reality we see every side of it and we mentally create a 3D picture of it in our head so using
Although he briefly trained as a Naval Surgeon, Ferguson soon realised that his ambition was painting and he spent some time travelling in Spain, Morocco and France to develop his artistic knowledge and experience. The first painting I am going to discuss is 'The Pink Parasol' which is a portrait painted in 1908 of a fellow artist and friend Bertha Case, when they were both in Paris. In this painting Ferguson adopted much stronger colours than in his other paintings and like Matisse used green paint to represent shadows in the face. He emphasised pattern by merging the pink parasol with the background of his picture by blending it with the cold colours. The painting is of a woman peering over her shoulder, she is wearing a hat with a pink bow and is also wearing a scarf, in the background there is a pink parasol around strong blocks of cold colours.
Turner use of vivid colors through watercolor techniques with oil paint brought both mystery and emotion to his work as he was able to show nature as a beautiful and awesome force to be dealt with in his paintings Slave Ship (1840) and Dutch Boats in a Gale (1801). Biblical,
The Study Diamond (The Open University (2013), Block 1, 2.3, p.75) will be used to explore the effects, techniques, context and meaning of the painting. Exploring techniques used and how they reflect the horror that war creates. The essay will also examine how the painting is seen by the world today, and if it is continuing to fulfil the purpose first asked of it. Guernica is an oil on canvas painting which stands 3.5 metres high by 7.8 metres wide, painted in shades of black, grey and white. Guernica does not directly portray the bombings, instead, it shows the terror and chaos created by war.
These lines were essential in painting the “numbers” around the clock. Since this is a clock, it’s obvious that there would need to be movement for it to correctly function and therefore is considered kinetic art. Faberge’s clock was a little different. The visual elements he used were color, space, lines, motion, shape and mass. Although the elements used in this clock are the same ones used in de Cristal’s, the two pieces are extremely different.
Which meant the town was very crowded with farmers from nearby towns (Holliday). The bombing of the powerless city lasted for over three hours, destroying most of the town. After the bombing, entire herds of horses, sheep and cattle were found slaughtered. Pablo Picasso received a commission to paint a mural for the Spanish Republic’s Pavilion at the Paris Exposition (Doyle). He decided to paint a mural of Guernica’s destruction.
In Picasso’s painting of Les Demoiselles d'Avignon you can see how he imposes geometrical symmetries in the women (cubism). As the book explains, you can see both the front and the back of the female figures; the nudes possess a “double point of view and their bodies are composed of a series of long lozenge shapes, hard angles and only a few traditional
The transition between an early modernist painting and abstract expressionists can be seen by looking at many different artists. In this essay I am going to look at work from Picasso, Gorky and Pollock to shed some light on some paintings and make the transitions more easily understood. Pablo Picasso takes abstract to the extreme in his painting “The Guitar Player”. You can barely see the figure in the artwork. He uses very little color and outlines in black.
He started using bright colors during that time and his art was influenced by painters too. He started painting streets and café of Paris. In that time he painted 20 portraits of himself when he couldn’t find any model to paint. In 1880 Van Gogh moved to Arles, France and did a painting of his bedroom which was named Bedroom Arles. He loved the vibrant color and the bright sun of Arles
