Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso
Spanish ARTIST; CERAMICIST; PLAYWRIGHT; POET; PRINTMAKER; SCULPTOR; STAGE DESIGNER
Born: 25 October 1881, Malaga, Spain
Died: 8 April 1973, Mougins, France

BIOGRAPHY

In 1907, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon saw the beginning of Picasso’s journey into freedom of expression – the influence of which had far reaching effects on the world of art. From this epiphany grew Picasso’s Cubist movement. The diversity of his work is notable as he explored techniques and styles that would best suit his particular interest at that time. Explore further by looking at the Picasso link to Artists’ Sites and compare his work with those of Georges Braque and Paul Cezanne, Paul Gauguin and Henri Matisse.

QUOTATIONS

“Art is a lie that makes us realise truth”
“Painting is a blind man’s profession. He paints not what he see, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen.”

Paintings

Blue Nude Blue Nude. BLUE PERIOD: Depressed over the death of a friend, blues and greens dominated Picasso’s work for three years. The lesser known ‘Rose Period’ followed. Three Women Three women. CUBIST PERIOD: This can be compared to current cooking trends of deconstructed dishes!
Two Women running on Beach Two Women running on the beach. CLASSICAL PERIOD: This period coincides with the First World War and Picasso’s return to reality Guernica Guernica. SURREALISM: Guernica portrays the devastation of the city by German bombers and is regarded as one of the most powerful depictions of anti-war paintings in history
MISCELLANEOUS: The following three pictures display the breadth of Picasso’s talent. The sketch is of Don Quixote, the hero of Miguel Cervantes’ book of the same name. The other two pictures show the contrasts in his style plus a delightful sense of humour!

Dickens: Charles John Huffam aka Boz

dickens
Born: 7 February 1812 in Portsmouth, England
Died: 9 June 1870 in Higham, Kent, England

 

‘Boz’ was the pseudonym under which Dickens was first published in 1833. Oliver Twist was his first novel which was published as a serial in monthly instalments. Dickens’ novels expose the conditions of mid-19 Century (Victorian) living for the poor and the working class. The three books named below are probably the easiest to read. Don’t be frightened by the language – the sentences are complex as was the style at the time – instead just let the words flow through your mind creating the pictures Dickens is painting for you.
Quotations
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.
