  • Picasso For Richardson
    1,060 words
    Privates on parade Sacred Monsters, Sacred Masters John Richardson Cape 20, pp 378 It was Jean Cocteau who first defined celebrities as sacred monsters. Despite its irony, the phrase was reverential: the playboys, harlots, tycoons, dope fiends and slumming artists whose misbehavior Cocteau chronicled were, in his view, our contemporary version of the Olympian deities - not better than the rest of us (as the Christian God and his immediate family claim to be) but merely richer, more concupiscent,...

    Rogue's gallery Sacred Monsters, Sacred Masters John Richardson 363 pp, Cape It gave Dr Barnes great satisfaction to say "nuts" to T S Eliot. Albert Barnes, a rapaciously paranoiac Philadelphian drug manufacturer, was the owner of the greatest private collection of modernist paintings in America; and America's greatest modernist poet made the mistake of requesting to see them. Eliot was lucky to get away with a fusillade of verbal abuse. Others were met with buckets of water, vitriol and death t...

  • Stein's Reflection Of Picasso
    484 words
    A Work of Art Though seemingly written in gibberish, Stein's reflection of Picasso is truly a work of art. She recognized his abstract art and attempted to apply it to literature. It seems very appropriate for her to mimic one of her best friends and honor him in such a way. Stein's thoughts on Picasso and the biography that she completed on him were ingenious, but they failed to mimic the work in two aspects; there was however one way in which her reflection remained germane to his artwork. Ste...

He loved to shock the public with his strange, powerful paintings...

    Pablo Picasso Text from Thomas Having, 'Art For Dummies (R) ' 'Yet Cubism and Modern art weren't either scientific or intellectual; they were visual and came from the eye and mind of one of the greatest geniuses in art history. Pablo Picasso, born in Spain, was a child prodigy who was recognized as such by his art-teacher father who ably led him along. The small Museo de Picasso in Barcelona is devoted primarily to his early works, which include strikingly realistic renderings of casts of ancien...

  • George Braque And Pablo Picasso
    2,158 words
    Although George Braque (May 13, 1882 - Aug. 31, 1963) was one of the most influential painters of the twentieth century his name is all but forgotten. He has received little credit for his efforts towards the creation of analytic cubism. Many art historians believe that his prestigious role as father of analytic cubism was cut short because of Picassos fame. Many arguments have arisen asking the question: Who is the father of cubism There is no doubt that Picasso started the spark which ignited ...

    1,558 words
    Les Demoiselles d'Avingnon 1907 Pablo Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avingnon features five angular female figures posed against a jagged blue curtain. This disconcerting sculptural depiction shocks the viewer through its harsh contours and disjointed subject matter of crowded nudes. The juxtaposition of western and 'primitive' art creates apprehension through the tight rectangular composition of Renaissance-influenced curvaceous women in the centre and primitive distorted masked figures in the out...
