Pablo Picasso And Wine
Pablo Picasso and wine have a long and interesting history. The artist was courted by the French art collector Paul Gauguin during the 1950s. Picasso's "Cubism" was inspired by Gauguin and his Cubist's peers were also avid collectors of art. Pablo Picasso painted both watercolor and oil paintings of wine bottles. Pablo Picasso's "Starry Night" is perhaps the most well-known and most widely used painting from his short career. It is a stunning depiction of the nighttime sky and cityscape taken from a private suite in GVA Studios, Barcelona, Spain. Pablo Picasso's "Cubism" was a major influence on the formation of the modern day Cubists. This painting represents Picasso's experimentation with new mediums such as watercolors, pencils and charcoal. Pablo Picasso and Wine - How the Two Are Connected? Pablo Picasso and his friend, the famous Spanish artist, Paul Durand-Ruel (also known as 'the painter' or 'the man' or 'the drunkard' as he was often called in English), enjoyed a close relationship. They shared projects and often worked together, from watercolor paintings like 'The Old Mill', 'Ledo', 'The Caged Bird' and Pablo Picasso's 'Pixisco'. Paul Durand-Ruel, described Picasso as a 'clown artist', who had fun with light and shade. Pablo Picasso and Paul Durand-Ruel enjoyed a long and colorful collaboration which included many works such as 'The Seated Man', 'The Old Mill', 'Ledo' and 'The Caged Bird'. Pablo Picasso and Paul Durand-Ruel had a large collection of 'lighters', many of which are still present in the Spanish National Museum in Madrid. These were the 'hilarious lighter' paintings which helped establish Pablo Picasso's reputation as a revolutionary artist. Paul Durand-Ruel said of Picasso that he 'wasn't a simple artist... He was no smarter than me...he borrowed from everything available to him.' The famous Parisian painting 'The Old Town in the High Street' is perhaps best recognized as a Picasso's 'ango', and it is this painting which features a large red, Spanish lantern, a setting that seems to mimic the Barcelona's Esplanada Square. Pablo Picasso and Paul Durand-Ruel enjoyed a long and varied association. The two artists were so similar that, according to one biographer, they actually influenced each other's 'dream' of how their paintings would appear. The similarities between Picasso's 'The Old Town in the High Street' and Durand-Ruel's 'The Drunkard' can perhaps be seen as an inspiration for Pablo Picasso's'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon' and for the Spanish artist's 'The Yellow House'. In both paintings the dark background is heavy, and the vibrant colours are very vivid and exciting. Pablo Picasso and Paul Durand-Ruel enjoyed a long and fruitful collaboration, which spanned several decades from 1903 until his death in 1970. As well as 'The Old Town in the High Street', another important early work by Picasso which can now be seen at the British Museum, is 'ulsion perversionnelle' (1907). This is a reproduction of a fresco by Picasso, which shows him at work at the moment when he was experimenting with the new mediums of impressionism. Here he shows off his experimentation with colored liquids, using oils and waxes, with a range of expressive effects, as he attempted to show the work of painting rather than just represent it. There are many more paintings from this period, which can be seen at the British Museum. In these paintings Picasso has attempted to bring life to the canvas, bringing alive, sometimes startling images of everyday objects. One painting, for example, shows a group of chickens in a field, which are being milked by a small boy. The image is vividly colored and shown in full color across the front of the painting. It is the very image that inspired Pablo Picasso's 'The Old Town in the High Street' and it continues to be seen at exhibitions all over the world. Pablo Picasso and wine were a unique partnership that stands the test of time. It was Picasso who brought the artist to England and helped him complete his most famous paintings, 'The Old Town in the High Street', 'The Seated Lamb' and 'Theumers Wedding'. The Spanish artist took on board an English team of artists who produced a series of striking modernist paintings which helped to define the modern art of the day. Today you can see Picasso's famous painting, 'Pablo Picasso And Wine', mounted on the wall as part of the Pablo Picasso exhibition at the Art Gallery of Liverpool.
