Nitiwath's response

Post  Nitiwath on Mon Oct 17, 2011 10:55 pm

After reading the chapter about Pablo Picasso, my first thought was that he is the great artist of the past whose innovativeness inspired millions of people since his time until now. However, it does not end just there; apart from being a very talented artist as he is, Pablo Picasso also created a very unique way of combining various styles into his own painting, making a remarkable work of art. For instance, the painting called Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, is one of many successful paintings painted by Pablo Picasso using the combined technique he developed. This particular work of art was known to be a painting that introduced the world to the whole new style of painting called Cubism.

“The painting present radical formal innovations combined with its thorough disregard for conventional standards of beauty of joint” said Galenson, the author of Conceptual revolutions in twentieth-century art (p 65). I strongly agree with this statement because as obvious as it is, Pablo Picasso was capable of combining numerous paintings style taken from many artists, fusing them together creating a masterpiece painting of his own, in which created such fame for himself. “Picasso’s willingness to combine elements from such highly disparate sources produces a startling visual result that dramatically announced a new era, in which artist were free to break with stylistic continuity, and to adapt to their own purposes anything that they found useful from the vast history of art.” (p. 65)

As a conclusion, I would like to emphasize on the idea widely known around the world on the fact that Pablo Picasso is the great artist who most influenced the new face of art. It’s safe to say that he is the revolution artist of all time.

'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon' by Pablo Picasso in 1907 is classified as 'the most important painting of the twentieth century' according to the Conceptual Revolutions in Twentieth-Century Art. After reading this book, there are several aspects I found out about this particular painting which makes it the most important painting of the 20th century. Picasso's ability to create a painting on such a large scale, 'more than 60 square feet in size' (65, Galenson) and to be able to [make] 'between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles' (65, Galenson) shows the dedication and passion he had towards his art. Being able to take small characteristics from different artists and yet add his own style to his painting is another reason why this painting a huge success.

Guillaume Apollinaire in 1913 said 'Picasso studies an object like a surgeon dissecting a corpse.' (pg 64, Galenson) This statement is an intriguing statement as the comparison is done between an artist and a doctor. In my opinion, the simile is apt in this scenario. A surgeon always dissects a corpse several times and goes into detail when he looks at different aspects within the body because every part is important. Similarly, an artist studies an object not just on the surface but goes into detail when he sees it. For example, in class when we studied about Paul Cezzane, he studied apples in detail till he could do with perfection. Applying the same principle, Picasso also studied his objects thoroughly and was able to portray them from his own vision. To conclude, I agree with what Nitiwath said 'that he was a great artist of the pass whose innovativeness inspired millions of people since his time until now' because he not only created a different vision of the world but also allowed people to create art using from different influences too. Truly, a huge inspiration to the entire world!

The Les Demoiselles d’Avignon painting, Picasso’s large masterpiece in twentieth century, is ‘the poses of the five nude women’ with ‘simplified forms’ (p.65, Galenson) from different perspective. Picasso developed and combined many techniques together to create his own unique style work, which make his painting looks very abstract and show what Cubism is. For example, he used Ce’zanne’s technique by ‘represent the tangible nature of objects without the use of linear perspective, which they regarded as mechanical and arbitrary’ (p.37, Galenson) but use several vantage point within one painting-two or three dozen viewpoints which represent his knowledge of the object. He also use stylized and distorted features of the figure from Gaugain’s technique. “The Demoiselles presented a radical synthesis of a variety of earlier artistic styles that had never previously been considered to be related.” (p.65, Galenson).

I also very impress to know that Picasso made between 400 and 500 studies preparatory drawings for this painting.

What Picasso did, his potential, his unique style and many more, make me totally agree with Nitiwath who said that ‘he was a great artist of the pass whose innovativeness inspired millions of people since his time until now’.

Pablo Picasso became one of the most famous artist in 20th century. His workd include oil paintings, sculpture, drawing and architecture, but the most well known is the oild painting and brought him the art history. His unique style of painting called, cubism, was recorded in great art history. “The Demoiselles announced Cubism’s rejection of linear perspective, which had dominated western art since the Renaissance, and anticipated the new representation of space and construction of form that would characterize the cubist revolution.”(p.65)

I really like Picasso’s process through his work. He took a lot of time before create his work. William Rubin said that “Picasso made between 400 and 500 studied for the Demoiselles,” this really mean that he put potential in his work and it’s a quality. After I read this book, I have no doubt why Pablo Picasso became of the genius artist in the world.

Post  Nattaphat on Tue Oct 18, 2011 12:01 am

It is clear that Pablo Picasso was one of the most sugnificant artist in the 20th century. He created a way to blend various style and technique of painting together as seen in his renowned work called "Les Demoiselles d’Avignon", which was stated to be 'the most important painting of the 20th century'(Galenson,2009,pg.64) His technique also influence the new movement called Cubism.

It looked like Picasso also put a lot of devotion into painting the Demoiselles, too. According to Galenson, Picasso 'began to fill one sketchbook after another with preparatory drawings for
his own large masterpiece' and 'made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles'(pg.65) because at the moment he was stung be his rival's, Henri Matisse, success.

I agree with Nitiwath at the point that the painting really shows 'radical formal innovations combined with its thorough disregard for conventional standards of beauty of joint'(pg.65) as Galenson stated, and I'd like to add that apart from being very creative, picasso also was very earnest and hard-working, too, so he could really came up with the new style that motivated thousands of people and made him one of the greatest artist in the 20th century.

Post  Nantawat on Tue Oct 18, 2011 12:01 am

I agree with the previous posts by Nitiwath and Annchal that Pablo Picasso's masterpiece,'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon' is the most important painting of the twentieth century as it was so revolutionary to the point that even Braque, who later joined Picasso in developing cubism was so shocked by the painting that he compared Picasso to the fairground fire-eaters who drank kerosene to spit flames.(p.65). It's no doubt that Picasso was one of the most inspiring artist we ever had, his unique talent for borrowing many different existing styles from other artists and combined them in his work to create a style of his own is fascinating. The poses of the five simplified nude figures with distortions and their compositions can be linked back to works by artists such as Paul Cezanne (who was called - a father of us all - by Picasso) and Gaugain (p.65).

However, what made this particular painting so respected is the amount of work and "research", Picasso had put in. As Picasso was stung by the success of his rival fauvist artist, Matisse, he devoted his time on making between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles – “a quantity of preparatory work unique not only in Picasso’s career, but without par- allel, for a single picture, in the entire history of art.”(p. 65). Hence Guillaume Apollinaire mentioned in 1913 that "Picasso studies an object like a surgeon dissecting a corpse.". (p64) thus, it shows how dedicated he was to this painting which was more than 60 square feet in size, the painting was by far the largest Picasso had ever attempted. Another thing to admire about this painting is Picasso's courage, "The Demoiselles announced Cubism’s rejection of linear perspective, which had dominated Western art since the Renaissance, and anticipated the new representation of space and construction of form that would characterize the Cubist revolution." .(p.65). Despite some negative comments, "Matisse denounce the painting as an attempt to discredit modern art." (p.65), Picasso had inspired us to believe in ourselves and showed us the incredible outcome when you combined your passion with perseverance.

Re: GAH - INDA: Discussion of Picasso's 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon'

Post  Patmala Boondej on Tue Oct 18, 2011 12:01 am

I'm convinced that Les Demoisellers d'Avignon is one of the most important works of art of the 20th century as Clement Greenberg's saying that "even in cases in which an artistit's new ideas are complemented by virtuosity in execution, the great value placed on rapid conceptual innovation differentiated the twentieth century from earlier periods with respect to artistic practice"(78) though Picasso did 400-500 studies in order to paint that very painting as Rubin concluded. In the painting Picasso combined techniques from other painters and the works created. As Greenburg points out, Picasso adapted simplification of forms and illusionistic space from Cezanne, distortion of figures from Gauguin, and primitivism from Greek sculpture, pre-Roman Iberian sculpture and African carvings from the Ivory coast. The painting depicts five naked woman with cruded faces and simplified bodies. We can also see indications of geometric shapes on both the faces and the bodies as well as negative space. Picasso painted what people couldn't see from a specific perspective by combing multiple perspectives by the use of illusionistic space, which then set the ground for Cubism.

According to the text, Berger stressed that cubism replaced perception with conception...structure "(36). Demoiselles is like a diagram that shows parts of human body composed of basic geometric shapes,and shows how they look when combining their multiple perspectives.

I also agree on Nitiwath that Picasso is one of the greatest artist because of his innovation

Pichayut's Response

Post  Pichayut Sirawongprasert on Tue Oct 18, 2011 12:01 am

Pablo Picasso was surely the greatest and most ambitious artist of the century. As clearly seen from 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon' by Pablo Picasso in 1907, Picasso painted the painting with a new perception of art. He boldy took existing artworks (whether it be from Cezanne or Gaugin or etc.) and turned them into critical elements of his painting. According to some art scholars, “ Demoiselles should be considered a Cubist painting” with no doubt that “it differed profoundly from all of the art that preceded it” (Galenson, 64). During that period of time, Cubism was not so clearly defined and developed; therefore, Picasso spent a huge amount of time and effort establishing it through his paintings. As we can see Picasso was a high-achiever and “the ‘Demoiselles’ was intended to be a masterpiece” (Galenson, 65). “Picasso made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles” with the final painting stretching “more than 60 square feet in size,” which was more than just enough (Galenson, 65).

Picasso wasn’t just a great artist because of his potential and innovative thinking, but he was also a trendsetter. In a way he thought steps ahead of other artists and how art should be pulled out. The true success in this particular painting wasn’t only because of its massive size or précised studies, but mainly it was from Picasso’s ability to break free from the boundaries (in which many artists at that time weren’t able to) and derive old paintings into new ones.

After spend sometime reading the book about Les Demoiselles d’Avignon,
a picture painted by Pablo Picasso, a famous artist who created many
remarkable art works in his time. I'm totally agree with "Les Demoiselles d’Avignon
is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century" (P.64)
The picture consist of 5 nude women poses in a simplified form, created by
a style of painting which is well-known today as "Cubism".
The picture itself become an inspiration for the next generation of art.

Picasso create this picture by using the inspiration from many artist's style of painting
and then combined together to form his own unique style.
He is able to "As Cubism became the most influential development in the
visual arts of the twentieth century, the Demoiselles stood out more and
more clearly as the century’s greatest masterpiece." (P. 65) we can see how
great this style inspired all the people.

Khim's Response

Post  Khim Pisessith INDA on Tue Oct 18, 2011 12:12 am

While Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is considered to be the most important painting of the twentieth century, it is also debated to be a proto-cubist piece which began cubism — this is at the point where perceptual no longer matters, and that which cubism has replaced perception with conception (Berger, p. 54). Pablo Picasso’s new way of describing the form of a human body, having a different pictorial idiom from other artists of his time, is achieved through 400 to 500 studies of figures: “a quantity of preparatory work unique not only in Picasso’s career, but without parallel, for a single picture, in the entire history of art.” (Rubin, p. 83).

Picasso distorts people by the way he reads them, and that result in the distortion of faces presented in Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (Global Art History Lecture, 11 Oct. 2011). I think Picasso is very successful in terms of combining different elements to make a technique of his own, and Demoiselles shows that well by representing a combination of geometric and organic shapes occurring through the figures he portrayed: “The Demoiselles presented a radical synthesis of a variety of earlier artistic styles that had never previously been considered to be related.” (Galenson, p. 83).

“Picasso creates this picture by using the inspiration from many artists’ style of painting and then combines them together to form his own unique style.”

I agree with Ayuthai that Picasso is very skillful on how he is capable of adapting different techniques learned from other artists into his own, like how he study the way to do brushstrokes from Vincent Van Gogh and forms from Paul Cezanne, and yet in the very same year has managed to transform them in order to fit his way of painting.

According from the passage, Picasso one of the greatest artist who achieved the goal from this career by painting the most influnce picture at that time which is the 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon' . This picture impact the way of art and paintings in 20th century. more over this picture have an effect on Cubism.

Cubism is a revolution of art. It changed the style of realistic to the modern age. This make the new face of the creative art circle by reduce some part of the object ,don't care with the effect of light , made it more two dimentional , use less vivid color and more symbolic to make an attractive look in the picture and to empasize the everyday object. In my point of view I am realy respect to picasso's courage in change the way of realistic paintings into more modern paintings because if his works are not that attractive, then it is gonna be abig failure in his life. I do agree on Fry qoute which describe picasso as “the painter who has had
more influence on modern art than any other single man.” because from what i have seen his interesting paintings Picasso only focus on the modernism and did extraordinary works which is now be an inspiration to many artist nowsday.

Chayothorn's Reponse

Post  Chayothorn on Tue Oct 18, 2011 12:24 am

“Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century (64),” said Galenson, the author of the book. It is also the most well known and the most popular one too. According to the survey, table 3.2, on page 64, Picasso’s painting, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, has present in 85% of the textbook that they surveyed. As I read throughout the Demoiselles painting, I found out that Picasso studied a lot before he made this masterpiece painting. The five women in the painting were developed from his studies. About 400-500 studies were made before drawing the Demoiselles (65). 400 is not a small number, I think he really put a lot of effort and everything he got into this painting. Normal people like us wouldn’t spend that much time on the study; we would have draw right after a few time of study. In this painting, he combined many ways and styles of painting from many famous artists and created his own style of drawing, which is reviewed in the Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. He had made a significant movement and impact to the world of art. By doing so, Picasso was very influential and changed many people’s view on art. Demoiselles is the key painting that leads us to a new movement of Cubism and possibly a revolution in art (65). Pablo was born to be an artist, talented in both artistic skills and his way of thinking artfully. Without this painting, the world would have closed its doors from a vast field of possibilities and ideas.

Post  Alliya on Tue Oct 18, 2011 12:40 am

Picasso was a very important person; starting cubism and producing most important painting of the twentieth century, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. Cubism was different from all the other movements before it, being "the most important and certainly the most complete and radical artistic revolution since the Renaissance" (Galenson 36). It breaks the concept that an object and be only viewed in one perspective and instead allowing the object to be seen from multiple views. I was surprised to learn that collage was first made by Picasso while experimenting with this new style.

Picasso's Les Demoiselles d’Avignon was hailed as most important painting of the twentieth century. It is the "watershed between the old pictorial world and the new" (Galenson 64). Demoiselles was something no one had ever seen before. It totally broke away from the norm, rejected linear perspective that had been used since the Renaissance era and started people. The amount of work and effort put into it is amazing. Picasso did roughly 400-500 studies for the final drawing that spans over 60 square feet in size. The nudes depicted was distorted but drawn in a style that is still recognizable.

I personally think the reason Demoiselles became so important is because it was so completely different and new. It represents a new idea, cubism, that had nothing similar to it and broke away from everything traditional. Both Demoiselles and Cubism became so influential and inspired artists so continually break away and explore new things.

I agree with Chayothorn that "Picasso was very influential and changed many people’s view on art". Though I disagree with him saying that "without this painting, the world would have closed its doors from a vast field of possibilities and ideas." I believe that had Picasso not make the painting, eventually someone else will. Many forget Georges Barque who also developed Cubism alongside Picasso but had to go to war. But this is all theoretical.

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), for me, it is just a painting of 5 nude women. Some of them are in wrong proportions, imbalance standing, line on the faces??, non-understandable background, etc. I had never known before that Pablo Picasso, the painter, made between 400 to 500 studies sketches of just this picture, ”10 More than 60 square feet in size, the painting was by far the largest Picasso had ever attempted" (William Rubin, page 65). The writer also professionally pointed about the painting that it is "The poses of the five nude women, their simplified forms, and their composition in space were derived in part from C´ezanne’s late paintings of bathers. The stylized and distorted features of the figures drew on Gauguin’s late work, and on a number of forms of art that Picasso considered “primitive,” including Greek sculpture, pre-Roman Iberian sculpture, and African carvings from the Ivory Coast" (page 65). It is completely difference from what I saw and did not surprised that the Demoiselles had announced Cubism’s rejection of linear perspective, which had dominated Western art since the Renaissance, and anticipated the new representation of space and construction of form that would characterize the Cubist revolution (page 65).

PS. I really like the friendship of Picasso and Braque, according to Picasso's words: "I have always said that Braque is my other half," and “almost every evening, either I went to Braque’s studio or Braque came to mine. Each of us had to see what the other had done during the day. We criticized each other’s work. A canvas wasn’t finished unless both of us felt it was.” I believe that if there was no Braque, Picasso would not develop the new way of seeing to be this far all by himself. What I do not understand is why Picasso is much more well-known than Braque? It is not fair, isn't it?

“Les Demoiselles d'Avignon is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century” (p.64). I do agree with the author. The Demoiselles is a master piece of Pablo Picasso artwork (1907) which using new style of painting that he created himself by combining many style and technique from various artists together. This style of painting influences the Cubism.

“The Demoiselles announced Cubism’s rejection of linear perspective, which had dominated Western art since the Renaissance, and anticipated the new representation of space and construction of form that would characterize the Cubist revolution.”(p.65) This support the fact that the cubism is totally different from the style of painting in that period of time and it also created a revolution for style of art.

Picasso used five nude women in the Demoiselles that were in five different poses. The composition and the detail in this painting were derived from other artists. This tells that he combined all of the elements from different sources in his painting like a combination of various artists' work. The Demoiselles made the revolution for the style of art that the artists were able to use everything they desire and use all techniques in their works, they do not need to follow old style like in the past.

Cubism become a style that is important in a development in the visual of art in the twentieth century ,causing the Demoiselles obviously became more and more outstanding as the century’s greatest masterpiece.

Personally, i think that Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is really focused on the sexuality too much and how picasso  worked at the paiting that he never worked with his other paintimg before according to the investigation and the many draft that he has planned before he painted Les Demoiselles d’Avignon were amazing that he has investigate the figure the culture well.
When i looked at the painting i think it s a paint of the prostitute because of thier nudity reflect the presentation of sexuality. I am also confused about the indian or african which make people make a comparison between them. I also think that he wanted to show the idea that the art doesnt lie on the narravitive or morality but it creates explore or on invent something. 
Cubism are the work which inspired relate to the music literature or architecture and the visual of the paimt are abstact and reprent the painter attitude and views.
The composition of the painter

After I reading the passage,Picasso was the one of the greatest artist who create many famous painting and more works . I'm agree with his painting "Les Demoiselles d’Avignon,the masterpiece work of him in 1907. He using his new style represent the five nude women with simplified forms from different perspective. He combine many kind of style and technique and become a "Cubism". Cubism was not so clearly defined and developed; therefore, Picasso spent a huge amount of time and effort establishing it through his paintings so that was an inspiration for the next generation.
From the reason above, I agreed the Picasso was the grestest artist in twentiet century.

Picasso who has change the superficial appearance of pictures more radically than any other in the whole history of the world. (P.38 Roger Fry)This is also because Cubism became the most influential development in visual arts of the twentieth century.(p.65) The idea of Cubism replaced perception with conception

I agree with Nithiwath who said about Picasso that “he was a grate artist of the pass whose innovativeness inspired millions of people since his time until” This is because after I look up to his work, unique technique, style of cubism and large scale of work, I think he is the coolest artist.

‘Les Demoiselles d’ Avignon’ which was the most important painting of the twentieth century created by Pablo Picasso in 1970. This is Picasso’s large masterpiece and I am very impress about how Picasso made between 400 and 500 studies for the preparatory of painting. This painting is more than 60 square feet in size and one of the largest that Picasso had ever attempted.(p.65) This also show how brilliant he is.

I also agree with Khim saying how he is very skillful. The Demoiselles presented a radical synthesis of a variety of early artistic styles that had never previously been considered to be related.(p.65 Picasso adapting different techniques that inspired from many artists for example Ceznne, Gaugin and etc. then combined to crate his own style of artwork. The poses of the five nude women with simplified forms, and their com- position in space were derived in part from Ce ́zanne’s late paintings of bathers.(p.65)
I really like the way Picasso work. He is also consider as the great artist because of his talented of combime element from highly disparated sources produced to from new work and also he is free to break with stylistic continuity and adapt to his purposes.(p.65)

Re: GAH - INDA: Discussion of Picasso's 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon'

Post  Kwanruk on Tue Oct 18, 2011 2:33 am

According to the passage, “The Demoiselles was intended to be a masterpiece.” (p.65) , in my opinion it should be a master piece because of the large amount of studies that Picasso has done before creating a painting that showed his determination.

I totally agree with most of the responses that The Demoiselles is the most important painting of the twentieth century. The reason is the perfect combination between various styles and techniques. “The Demoiselles presented a radical synthesis of a variety of earlier artistic styles that had never previously been considered to be related.” (p.65)

Moreover, Picasso is a great artist because he dared to try mixing some of the regular styles and created his own unique style that inspired new generation of Cubism. “The Demoiselles announced Cubism’s rejection of linear perspective, which had dominated Western art since the Renaissance, and anticipated the new representation of space and construction of form that would characterize the Cubist revolution.” (p.65) Even though this picture is a rejection of a cubism which dramatically announce the new era, but Picasso also concerned about primitive, including Greek sculpture, Pre-Roman, Iberian sculpture and African carving from the Ivory Coast.

According to the passage shows that Pablo Picasso’s paintings was very famous, as we can see from the book that Galenson said “Les Demoiselles d’ Avignon is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century.(64)” Pablo Picasso was one of the most famous artist in 20th century. He is very famous for the Cubist movement and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. By in this painting Picasso had created hundreds of sketches and studies in preparation for the final piece as we can see from William Rubin words that “in all Picasso made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles (65)” I am admire him and feel very impress to know this because it shows that he put a lot of effort to paint this masterpiece by study a lot of culture and paintings. In my opinion I think he is very patient and ambitious man because he has to analyze and truly understand every study that he made and 500 researches is a big number of study if only for 1 painting.

Les Demoiselles d’ Avignon is the painting that Picasso mixed the various styles of previous artists, Cezanne’s work, Gauguin’s work also the ancient Greek sculpture as we can see from the book that “The Demoiselles presented a radical synthesis of a variety of earlier artistic styles that had never previously been considered to be related. The poses of the five nude women, their simplified forms, and their com- position in space were derived in part from Ce ́zanne’s late paintings of bathers. The stylized and distorted features of the figures drew on Gauguin’s late work, and on a number of forms of art that Picasso con- sidered “primitive,” including Greek sculpture, pre-Roman Iberian sculp- ture, and African carvings from the Ivory Coast (65)

Because of this combine shape colors and styles of many artists made Picasso drew a new path to the 20th century art which lead him to become unique from every other artist of this period.

Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon"

Post  Nathakit on Tue Oct 18, 2011 2:43 am

Pablo Picasso was no doubt one of the greatest artist of the century and this painting proves that, the 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon' by Pablo Picasso in 1907 is said to be 'the most important painting of the twentieth century in Twentieth-Century Art and a masterpiece.

Picasso developed many kinds of techniques and fusing different techniques together to create his own style of painting and the result of this fusion is cubism, which is unlike any other artist had done before therefore making his painting look fresh and new which is why this painting is such a huge success.

His painting, 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon' is painted on such a large scale of approximately 60 square feet (65, Galenson), and made between 400 and 500 studies preparatory drawings. For someone to go through this amount of effort shows great perseverance, passion and dedication as an artist and an individual to paint something as large as 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon'.

Picasso wasn’t just a regular artist but a very unique and has that special characteristic and great potential that few people have. This special characteristic and potential is shown through his paintings which he spent great amount of time working on. Besides the size and the studies he made, there’s also his ability to think ahead of other people and artists. To conclude, Picasso is a very influential artist that gives inspiration and changes the views of many artists and his works are revolutionary in art history.

Jirapatr Jitwattanasilp : Les Demoiselles d’Avignon

Post  Jirapatr on Tue Oct 18, 2011 3:25 am

According to the book, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is the painting in 20th century. It's the one of the most remarkable art pieces of this age. It's is an cubism art which is something different from the past such as “The Demoiselles announced Cubism’s rejection of linear perspective, which had dominated western art since the Renaissance, and anticipated the new representation of space and construction of form that would characterize the cubist revolution.”and "The Demoiselles presented a radical synthesis of a variety of earlier artistic styles that had never previously been considered to be related." (p.65).

For me Picasso is the one who create a new kind of art which it didn't have to be on the kind of realistic painting but it's a kind of art which is an outcome already passed through process of thought to express what he want to said.

LES DEMOISELLES D’AVIGNON

Post  Punnarungsi Temswaenglert on Tue Oct 18, 2011 3:56 am

According to his significant work, Picasso is the most famous artist in 20th century. He has created many of his masterpieces during his lifetime. He had combined many style of painting and created his own unique style, which differentiate him from other artist. Picasso is the kind of person that had his own imagination and ambitious in order to created his works, which most of them are significant. The most famous work that he had painted with his style of ‘cubism’ and effect the whole history of art was ‘'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon'. This painting was later the example of a new style of painting which was the changing point of the history of art. Cubism is the style of art that makes the painting looks two dimensional and use less vivid color and more symbolic in order to make an attractive look in the picture. It was widely spread out according to its uniqueness and creativeness. Picasso had encouraged many artists to jump out of the frame and find their own style; he was the good example of creativity.

Moreover I really impressed how Picasso managed to work on his painting and the process of his works. Picasso had spent a lot of time researching before he started to paint. He was deliberated in every detail of his work.

response Les Demoiselles d’Avignon

According to the book “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century (p.64)”

Pablo Picasso was the greatest and famous artist in 20th century, he developed and explored many style and techniques of many earlier artists before him such as He used the position space of the poses of the five nudes from Cezanne’s work and retrospectives of Gauguin to create his masterpiece which is become Cubism that very new and succeed that showed in the book “The Demoiselles presented a radical synthesis of a variety of earlier artistic styles that had never previously been considered to be related. The poses of the five nude women, their simplified forms, and their com- position in space were derived in part from Ce ́zanne’s late paintings of bathers (p.65)”

Picasso is a very unique artist and has his prominent attribute and high potential that few people have, which I really impressed. This characteristic is shown through his paintings that he spent a lot of time to make studies and sketches before painting this masterpiece, as we can see from Rubin concluded in the book ”In all Picasso made between 400 and 500 studies for the Demoiselles (p.65)”

In my opinion I think Picasso is the one who gives the inspiration in abstract art and very good example in work process also he can show that art can be more than just a drawing or painting. “Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth - Pablo Picasso”.
