The Treasure Of Picasso's Paintings

Picasso paintings exhibit a soul of their own and are renowned for their realistic look. They have been placed in different periods of his painting career namely, the Blue, the Rose and the Cubist periods. These paintings showcase Picasso's immense talent and his fearlessness as a painter experimenting with different techniques and ideas.

Picasso loved to paint dead nature, musical instruments and friends. He went beyond the rules of academics, exploring the painting art in his own way. His paintings often broke the cliches of tradition and stood tall and proud displaying a uniqueness of their own. Some notable paintings of Picasso include The Two Saltimbanques (Harlequin And His Companion, 1901), Gertude Stein (1906), Les Demoiselles d' Avignon (1907), Guernica (1937) and Weeping Woman (1937).

Picasso's 'Guernica' deserves a special mention as this painting is considered to be a powerful statement in politics. Depicting the suffering and war induced tragedy, this work is truly monumental and a combination of two styles, epic and pastoral.

Paintings from Picasso's Blue period are believed to have taken birth from his state of mind following the death of his friend Casamegas and express a state of melancholy. These paintings are characterised by their monochrome and cold effects, the coldness highlighted by the clever use of blue color. 'La Vie', 'Evocation', his 'Self Portrait' are the names of a few paintings from this period.

Paintings like 'Garcon a la Pipe', 'Woman With Crow', 'Acrobat With Young Harelequin' and 'Girl In Chemise' are from Picasso's Rose period and often feature local people and characters from the entertainment industry. In contrast to the downbeat Blue period, The Rose period paintings led to the birth of a typical 'Picasso' style and were optimistic in their mood.

Paintings like the 'Three Musicians' and 'Guitar' marked the Cuban period of Picasso's art. The paintings depicted a transition of forms, from natural to geometric and angular. Multi-view figures also took shape mainly in dull colors and redefined Picasso's paintings.

It has been proven, time and again, throughtout the art community of the world and otherwise that there was something special about Picasso's paintings. His paintings speak for themselves and come alive in more ways than one. They happen to be a status symbol of sorts and are a prized possession anywhere, anytime.

Paintings by Picasso were never amateur. His art developed gradually, in phases, brightened and strengthened by experience and genuine talent. His expression of raw emotions took one's breath away and left one and all craving for more.

Pablo Picasso himself said, "Are we to paint what's on the face, what's inside the face or what's behind it?" His paintings redefined every face and finally contributed immensely to the face of the painting fraternity. Here's to all Picasso paintings that continue to enchant and fascinate us.
