Pablo Picasso Paintings Bather

Pablo Picasso Bather

Bather was painted by Pablo Picasso in 1908-09. In Bather, Picasso used a nude female figure standing at the seaside as a testing ground for new representational possibilities, challenging pictorial conventions of space, beauty, and time. The background is simplified into three bands of color applied in flat, rough strokes. The bather’s body is broken into discrete parts; her breasts, stomach, and shoulders are hardened into geometric arcs and curves, and her right foot twists unnaturally.  picasso paintings for sale

Traditional painting captures a single moment from a single perspective; Picasso depicted his bather’s torso from the front, rear, and side, presenting multiple views simultaneously.

Picasso Paintings Still Life with a Bottle of Rum

Still Life with a Bottle of Rum was painted by Pablo Picasso in 1911. Picasso painted Still Life with a Bottle of Rum during the summer of 1911 in Céret, the small town in the French Pyrenees that was so popular with poets, musicians, and artists—especially the Cubists—before World War I that it has been called the “spiritual home of Cubism.” Picasso paintings for sale

One is hard-pressed to see the bottle of rum indicated in the title of this work, which was painted during the most abstract phase of Cubism, known as “high” Analytic Cubism (1910–12). In the upper center of the picture are what seem to be the neck and opening of a bottle. Some spidery black lines to the left of it might denote sheet music, and the round shape lower down, the base of a glass. Buy famous paintings reproductions online

In the center, at the far right, is the pointed spout of a porrón (Spanish wine bottle). This is one of the first works in which Picasso included letter forms. It has been suggested that the ones shown at the left, LETR, refer to Le Torero, the magazine for bullfighting fans—Picasso being one of them—but they might simply be a pun on lettre, French for “word.” This painting can be reproduced by Daydaypaint.com.

Picasso Bust of a Man

Bust of a Man was painted by Pablo Picasso in 1908. Picasso’s rough-hewn rendering of a man’s head combines aspects of African and Iberian art which had first impacted his work a year or two earlier. Reduced to a few simple shapes and large masses, the head has a masklike appearance. buy picasso paintings online

The highly stylized lozenge-shaped eyes and mouth are dark open voids that could have been copied from the stone and bronze Iberian sculptures that Picasso saw in Gósol and the Louvre, or from the wooden African masks in the Musée d’Ethnographie du Trocadéro and in private collections, but most likely were a synthesis of both sources.

Pablo Picasso Paintings Reading at a Table

Picasso Paintings Reading at a Table

Reading at a Table was painted by Pablo Picasso in 1934. In 1927, when he was forty-five, Picasso met Marie-Thérèse Walter, a seventeen-year-old French schoolgirl who became his mistress. In retrospect, their relationship seems the happiest and least public of Picasso’s many amatory alliances, and no other woman is more intricately woven into the fabric of his art.  Picasso paintings for sale

In this painting of Marie-Thérèse, the time is night and the scene is intimate: she sits reading at a table in a room illuminated by only a small lamp. One hand gently holds open the pages of her book while the other touches her garland-crowned head with fingers that resemble feathers. The space of the room is compressed, but the resulting distortions are never severe. famous paintings reproductions online

Sinuous rhythms absorb the straight linear accents of the table, and the exaggerated height of both table and plant emphasizes the young woman’s childlike appearance. Her pale blond hair and blue-white skin make her look especially ethereal within this dark and deeply colored interior. The canvas, one of several similar compositions Picasso painted of his mistress, is a poem by a man in love. This painting can be reproduced by Daydaypaint.com.

Pablo Picasso Paintings Seated Harlequin

Picasso Paintings Seated Harlequin

Seated Harlequin was painted by Pablo Picasso in 1901. This early masterpiece by Picasso represents the first appearance of this theatrical character in his work. By 1905, such clowns frequently inhabited his Rose Period pictures of itinerant circus families. In the late 1910s and 1920s, the image of the harlequin was transformed through the fractured planes of Analytic Cubism. Here, however, the broad, flat planes of color and thickly outlined shapes show a decorative, even Fauvist, influence. This picture is also an early example of what is termed Picasso’s Blue Period, in which he uses blue and cool tones to create austere, melancholy images. Most often Picasso’s works from this period portray social outcasts from the city’s streets and cafés: beggars, prostitutes, the blind, and itinerant families.  buy picasso paintings online

While the harlequin in this early composition is dressed in whiteface and a conventional parti-colored unitard, his averted gaze and contemplative, melancholy demeanor are in marked contrast to his traditional role as a clown. Holding two fingers to his cheek, he rather epitomizes the thoughtful introvert. The café setting, enlivened with bold floral wallpaper and accoutrements for smoking, further heightens his isolation from his surroundings and from everyday pleasures. paintings reproductions sale

Here, as elsewhere, Picasso has revealed the private sadness behind the public face of this character—an interpretation that has greater resonance when one considers that the artist often regarded his clowns as representations of his alter ego. Painted in Paris in the autumn of 1901, the somber mood of this picture might reflect Picasso’s own profound feelings after the recent suicide of his friend Carlos Casagemas.

Pablo Picasso Painting Weeping Woman

Pablo Picasso Paintings The Studio

Pablo Picasso Paintings The Studio

The Studio was painted by Pablo Picasso in 1955. A major painting from the 1950s, Studio depicts the studio of ‘La Californie’, the villa near Cannes where Picasso and his partner Jacqueline Roque had moved in the summer of 1955. A large nineteenth-century villa at the foot of the Sainte Victoire mountain, La Californie was built in Art Nouveau style and had extensive views towards the coast. Picasso used the large main salon on the ground floor as his studio as well as the place where he received and entertained friends and dealers. Between 23 and 31 October 1955 Picasso depicted views of his studio eleven times, returning to the same subject on 12 November for a twelfth canvas.  picasso paintings for sale

With the exception of the twelfth work, all the Studio paintings are in portrait format, but vary in size, from 730 x 540 mm to 1950 x 1300 mm. This work was painted over two days, 30 and 31 October. Picasso applied the paint directly on the canvas with a brush and a palette knife, using the end of the brush to scrape the paint and reveal the ground in several places. In some background areas, particularly the window, the paint was applied thinly and the ground was occasionally left visible, while in others, such as the sculpted head, Picasso used a thick impasto.

The image represents particular aspects of the studio – the ornate Art Nouveau window, certain tools and even a guitar hanging on the wall elements which were repeated in all twelve studio canvases. Although Picasso returned to the theme of the artist in the studio countless times, this series is unusual because here the studio itself becomes the main protagonist of the painting. The studio is empty but Picasso’s presence is strongly felt in the tools and the sculpted head on a modelling stand. famous paintings for sale

The studio had been a favourite subject for his friend and rival Henri Matisse and it has been suggested that Picasso adopted it at this time as a direct response to the artist’s death the previous year. Art historian Michael FitzGerald has written that this series is steeped in Matisse’s approach the central window that establishes the contrast between a brilliant natural exterior and a sombre interior, and even the profusion of linear patterns scratched into the walls and floors with the butt of a brush, making the room as visually dynamic as the blazing yellows and greens outside.’The sheer decorativeness of the window and the exotic palms it frames also recall the opulent decoration of Matisse’s Odalisque paintings. The twelve Studio canvases were first shown at the Galerie Louise Leiris, Paris, in the spring of 1957. buy painting reproductions

Picasso Painting Nude Woman in a Red Armchair

Picasso Painting Nude Woman in a Red Armchair

Nude Woman in a Red Armchair was painted by Pablo Picasso in 1932. Dated 27 July 1932, this work belongs to the remarkable sequence of portraits that Picasso made of Marie-Therese Walter in his studio at the Chateau de Boisgeloup.  picasso paintings for sale

Marie-Therese is presented here – as in almost her portraits – as a series of sensuous curves. Even the scrolling arms of the chair have been heightened and exaggerated to echo the rounded forms of her body. The face is a double or metamorphic image: the right side can also be seen as the face of a lover in profile, kissing her on the lips. famous paintings for sale

Pablo Picasso Bust Nude with Sculptor’s Turntable

Pablo Picasso Bust Nude with Sculptor's Turntable

Bust Nude with Sculptor’s Turntable was painted by Pablo Picasso in 1932. Picasso first encountered Marie-Therese Walter in January 1927. He kept their relationship secret for many years, even from some of his closest friends, but particularly from his wife Olga. In 1931-2 he embarked on a series of sculptures and paintings of Marie-Therese, made at his studio in the Chateau de Boisgeloup, which he had purchased in 1930.  famous paintings for sale

Picasso’s habit of dating his work very precisely makes it possible to trace the development of this sequence as Picasso discovered an increasingly complex manipulation of her body. Made on 8 March 1932, Nude, Green Leaves and Bust is the most intense among the group of large nudes, counterpointing the real head with a sculpted head, and the folds of Marie-Therese’s body with the luxuriant forms of a philodendron plant. The setting includes a secretive curtain against which the sculptural bust casts a double shadow, as if the white of the foreground nude was literally illuminating the space. picasso paintings for sale

Picasso Still Life Painting Dish of Pears

Still Life Painting Dish of Pears was painted by Pablo Picasso in 1936. Picasso painted still life subjects throughout his career and in a range of different styles. Here the dishes of fruit are depicted in a flat, graphic manner.  picasso paintings for sale

The white area behind the pears was, unusually, added as the final layer of the painting and creates a palpable sense of space rather than a simple blank background. The different elements of the composition are separated by thick black lines and the end result is an almost abstract pattern of colours and shapes. famous paintings for sale
