Picasso Paintings

Pablo Picasso's paintings are instantly recognisable as being Picasso's own, even if they aren't. Picasso paintings are a far cry from the mass-produced, cookie-cutter paintings that litter the floors of shops. Pablo Picasso was an Spanish artist, graffiti artist, printmaker, ceramist and theatrical designer who spent the majority of his life in France. Although he was one of the most famous painters of modern time, his name is almost unknown in the English speaking world. Due to this, it's not easy to find Pablo Picasso paintings for sale, unless you know where to look.

In spite of the fact that Picasso's artwork is so popular, few people are aware that the original artist created a very large collection of sketches and paintings. Known as the Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, this large work of art included some of Picasso's earliest works. Avignon is where Picasso made most of his early paintings, although he never actually lived in Avignon. It is also where the tradition of 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon' began.

The original group of paintings which comprise the Les Demoiselles d'Avignon are mostly classified as Cubism. This is because Picasso used several different methods when rendering these images. For example, the avignon was painted using dry ice and then he would add water drops of lemon yellow to create the color of the cloud. The original painting also included water lilies.

The second group of paintings which comprise the Les Demoiselles d'Avignon collection are largely considered to be Guernica. Guernica means “woman with lap”. In accordance with Pablo Picasso's concept of Cubism, Guernica features beautiful women holding hands or cradling each other. The subject of the Guernica paintings varies from western European figures to Asian ones. For example, Guernica's early work often featured European women, while later more Oriental women would appear.

The third group of Picasso paintings which comprise the Les Demoiselles d'Avignon series are considered to be a form of Nouveau movement. This movement is characterized by a desire to re-discover the lost cultural heritage of the ancient civilizations of the Iberian peninsula. According to Picasso's philosophy, it was through the study of ancient culture that revealed the true beauty of the Spanish soil. In Avignon, there emerged what we know today as modern art – a fusion of art history and architecture. Due to this, the avignon was named ” Picasso's Picasso” after the French painter.

One of the most representative examples of a Picasso painting les demoiselles d'avignon is “The Old Man and the Sea”. This painting, which predates “Mycelial Fun” and “Daughter”, represents Picasso's fascination with the ancient Iberian Peninsula. The sea monster which haunts the painting is a reference to the giant squid which terrorized the coastal region of the Peninsula in the ancient times. Another symbolic creature found in this painting is the octopus, which symbolizes all the mystery and confusion of the avant-garde art world. The painting also contains numerous other creatures like crabs, lobsters, all portrayed in a manner of symbolic representation.

The last group of Picasso paintings which feature him are called “The Cubists”. These are the works which he produced after leaving Goya, whom he had worked with since WW II. Picasso wanted to create a “Picasso without Goya” as an attempt to break away from the rigid, conceptualist rationalism of the art world, and instead create a more abstract form of art, in which his style of visual intuition and color usage would play a leading role.

“Cubism” is the name given to a style of painting in which large central images are set against a backdrop of very small, often insignificant, pictures. The central image could be a landscape, a building or a painting, but the entire painting functions as a part of a larger whole. Cubists as a whole did not have a pre-conceived idea of what Cubism should look like, they just took advantage of the opportunity to use photography to capture their ideas. Cubists Picasso paintings are a great example of modern art at its best.
