When this Art was brought back to France, it inspired Pablo Picasso to create one of the first works of cubism. In 1907 Picasso visited the Trocadero Museum of Paris; He stated “the masks were not like any other pieces of sculpture, not at all. They were magic things.” In the same year, Picasso created “Les Demoiselles d 'Avignon” or, “The Young Ladies of Avignon”, which can be seen in Figure 1. This work is considered a major step in the creation of the cubist style.
Picasso creatively uses principles like color, space, shape, balance, form, composition in this artwork. Additionally this artwork showcases concepts that stems from cubism, surrealism and primitivism. Forms look flat and are cut presented geometrically, which make for an interesting composition in the scheme of the painting. It is also through these factors and the subjects that Picasso articulates his story. Briefly this artwork shows 2 fisherman, one holds a spear, and the other looks over the side of the boat and holds the spear with his foot.

Picasso had many drawings that indirectly supported men to be the superior and wiser. For example, in his La vie painting he drew a naked woman standing beside a man who is wearing underwear, as on the other side there was another woman who was holding a baby. One can judge Picasso as a man who looked at women as sexual objects or mothers depending on what his paintings were about, especially this one. Therefore, one can realize how Picasso’s art has supported the inferiority of
One of the leading artists that made a big impact with his paintings is no one other than Pablo Picasso. Pablo Picasso is a well know painter in our day and he was known for his many beautiful works. But he has a work that stands out in-between all the others; his most know painting; a painting that criticizes a certain act of war rather than just being an imaginary product. The act that we are talking about here is the bombing practice of the Nazi’s on Guernica and the painting is a reaction to this inhuman event. “Guernica” was Picasso’s most powerful politic statement and his most known artwork (Guernica).
His greatest contribution to art is the cultivation of the modern art concept, known as 'impressionism'(Claude Monet, 2004). It is an artistic philosophy which changed the then accepted perception of color and light.His artistic style is characterized by the use of feathery strokes of the paint brush to depict the play of light with respect to the time. He believed that depicting 'time' in a painting is more important than the 'plot', and was interested in using his painting to capture the feel of the moment. As per Monet "One does not paint countryside, a view, a figure. One paints an impression of an hour of the day (Brussat and Brussat, n.d.)."
Axel Contreras Professor Mendoza English 1301 SP4 October 3, 2017 The Value of Art Art is a significant part of our everyday lives typically involving all forms of entertainment and the way in which we express ourselves. I thoroughly enjoy trying to find the meaning in many forms of art due to my lack of talent in that area, but it only allows me to have a deeper appreciation for it. It is for this reason that I have chosen to analyze the topic of arts and letters, and to gain insight on what art truly is. “Lady in a Veil” written by Lewis H. Lapham, consists of contrasting what people believe to be the value of art and what they convey it to be. He begins by quoting Tolstoy whom referred to art as a means of sharing one’s feelings with others,
During the Baroque period artists strived to propel themselves away from the idealism of the Renaissance and instead pursued the path of naturalism. This era of art was filled with dynamic images and the artists at this time were desperately attempting to capture a single moment of time in their artwork. One such artist was Diego Velazquez, who longed to utilize his artistic abilities in order to advance his position in society. He believed that their was no nobler profession than that of an artist, and so he sought to prove his value through his creative talent. He succeeded in his quest because his paintings garnered him critical acclaim and earned him the praise of the monarchs of his time.
Picasso experimented with the theme of bathers from 1918 until 1971, with paintings such as "The Bathers" (1918), "Ballplayers on the beach" (1928), "Figures on a Beach" (1931) and a wood sculpture group "Bathers" cast in bronze (1956). This theme was also common in the works of artists made around the same period, such as "Bathers with a turtle" (1908) and "Bathers by a river" (1909-1916) by Matisse, "Three bathers" by Cezanne (1879-1882). In American art of the 20th century, the main trend was painting nude figures bathing in none idealized, realistic settings, such as Joan Sloan 's "South beach bathers" (1907-1908) and Gorge Bellow 's "Forty-two kids" which depicts boys bathing in a river. The volumetric forms of the figures in the painting appear in many of Picasso 's later works, such as "Seated bather" (1930) which, like many other of his works, depicts a surrealist figure which is made up of many angular, hard
