The Blonde Lover in Picasso Paintings

30 Oct

This Picasso painting is with very beautiful curves and rich colors, and behind it there is a fascinating story. In January 1927, Picasso who was 45 years old met Walter 17 years younger than him in a subway station of Paris.

Although Picasso had married with the Russian ballet dancer Olga Khokhlva for nearly 10 years and had a 5-year-old son, he still held Walter’s arms, said, “I am Picasso! You and I will make good things together.” From then on, Walter became a great painter’s Secret lover. In 1932, Picasso exhibited Reading in Paris and had won wide acclaim. Later this surrealism painting was bought by an American collector. But Olga also revealed that his husband’s cheat on her in the half-naked posture of the painting. Soon, she left Picasso with a son, but until she died in 1955, she and Picasso had not officially divorced. For more please visit http://www.artisoo.com

The Basic Elements in Picasso Cubism

2 Aug

In the analysis of Picasso Cubist paintings, images were reduced to their basic elements, which were decomposed into many small pieces. Picasso took these blocks as constituent elements and constructed the new order of images and space. He connected the strokes to obtain a clear picture structure, reflecting a rigorous and rational painting procedure.

Bottle Glass Violin was made by Picasso in 1912. From 1912, Picasso turned to the drawing experiment of synthetic cubism. The pictures clearly showed this new style. In this picture, people can distinguish several graphs based on ordinary reality of images: a bottle, a glass and a violin. Here, the focus of attention of the painter was still the basic form.

The collage art language was the main symbol of cubist paintings. Picasso once said, “Even if from the aesthetic perspective, people also prefer cubism. But the paper paste is the real core people have found.”
