Pablo Picasso stated:
“Painting isn’t a question of sensibility; it’s a matter of seizing the power,
taking over from nature, not expecting her to supply you with information
and good advice. That’s why I like Matisse. Matisse is always able to make
an intellectual choice about colors.” (p.33)

Matisse was the important artist during the Fauvism movement. The painting during this movement used the bright color to symbolize the object. The emotion and expression of the painting were expressed by the use and tone of color. As Matisse stated, “What I
am after, above all, is expression . . . I am unable to distinguish between
the feeling I have about life and my way of translating it” (p.35). This means that what he drew is come from his feeling. His paintings are like the outcome or concrete object from his feeling.

Next movement was Cubism. During cubism movement, the objects of artwork or painting had abstracted shape. They were viewed from many perspective or viewpoint to represent the object in a greater context. Pablo Picasso was one of the famous artists during this movement. Picasso collaborating with Georges Braque had created many great artworks and influenced many artists. They both had the same interest in the style of art. They wanted to show the nature of objects from many viewpoints, which became the result of their artworks. In 1912 Roger Fry even describe Picasso as the most influence artist on modern art (p.38). Picasso changed the appearances of the pictures more than other artists in the world.

I totally agree with the author’s view of Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, the most important painting of the twentieth century painted by Pablo Picasso. It is considered the most important painting of the twentieth century because of its artistic quality. Clement Greenberg, a famous influential visual art critic said “Quality in art is not just a matter of private experience. There is a consensus of taste”. Important work of art has to embody very important innovations.

I also have to agree with Nattakul J. in previous post that what Roger Fry stated was indeed true. “Picasso changed the appearances of the pictures more than other artists in the world.”

Picasso through his painting, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, announced Cubism style of painting to the world. The author, Galenson (2009) ,said that “The painting present radical formal innovations combined wit its thorough disregard for conventional standards of beauty of joint” (p.65). It’s style totally different from all the previous style. Before this great piece of art, many paintings used linear perspective view and had dominated since Renaissance. The proposal of this new abstract style caused a publicity stunt. Les Demoiselles d’Avignon was created by combining different style of art. Cezanne’s composition in space of his late drawing, Gauguin’s stylized and distorted features of the figures, pre-Roman Iberian sculpture, and African carving style can be seen in this extraordinary painting. This painting stood out from other paintings in the twentieth century because it opened the door to the new era, an era where artist is no longer bound by previous preset techniques. Without any doubt Les Demoiselles d'Avignon is the most important painting of the twentieth century.

Les Demoiselles D'Avignon is definitely one of the most important paints in the history of mankind. Also painted by one of the world’s most important painter, this painting does not only adds another chapter to the modernism era but also changes our ways of viewing art. Picasso’s extensive research that he did before painting this master piece was amazing. A normal painter that studies the form of human body would not make 400 to 500 studies of what he was about to paint. “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.” I think that Titirat is right to quote Clement Greenberg for this (1st paragraph, 3rd line) which is: “Quality in art is not just a matter of private experience. There is a consensus of taste”. And I think that this is extremely correct. The final quality of art that will be produced by an artist could not be forced to be great but a painting would be great only if that painter have the inspiration or the need to do that painting. Anyone could do that extensive study that Picasso did on this painting but if they were not interested to the subject as Picasso was than the study would not have had the same result as what Picasso did.

Every painting that had ever been painted up to this point had taken the subject with one point of view. Meaning even if that painting showed movement in a way that most people had never perceived before (Dynamism of A Dog on a Leash (1912) Giacomo Balla) but for Les Demoiselles D'Avignon, this is different. It’s a perspective that had never been seen before; it’s multiple perspectives that had been fuzzed together into one painting. “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)

I also have to agree with Nattakul J. and Titirat in previous post that what Roger Fry stated was indeed true. “Picasso changed the appearances of the pictures more than other artists in the world.” From his painting, it is real different and “change our way of viewing art” which is Fifa post before and influences the following artist. As you can see his artwork Les Demoiselles d’Avignon which in his African-influenced period between (1907-1909), which were inspired by African artifacts. And this idea was developed during this period and influence directly to the Cubism period after.

“Analytic cubism (1909–1912) is a style of painting Picasso developed along with Georges Braque using monochrome brownish and neutral colors. Both artists took apart objects and “analyzed” them in terms of their shapes. Picasso and Braque’s paintings at this time have many similarities. Synthetic cubism (1912–1919) was a further development of the genre, in which cut paper fragments—often wallpaper or portions of newspaper pages—were pasted into compositions, marking the first use of collage in fine art.” From in class lecture.

Both Titirat and Fifa correct in the post that ““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.” I think that Titirat is right to quote Clement Greenberg for this (1st paragraph, 3rd line), which is: “Quality in art is not just a matter of private experience. There is a consensus of taste”. And I also think that both of this is extremely correct.” Art are not just what you see and love in how they paint or just how they paint thought his present emotion or his own experience.

“Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.” Pablo Picasso. This quote can answer the whole question of his artwork.

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon has definitely made a success in terms of art evolution; with its innovative style, there is no doubt it is amongst the greatest art pieces of the 20th century.

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon contains the definition of modern era; this is yet again another piece that has uniquely presented a new movement in art history. Picaso painted characters of 5 figures, which are portrayed through disjointed forms and feminine elements; therefore, showing female figures, yet keeping out seductive elements normally shown by nude female figures, making this painting unique and mysterious. As far as cubism is concerned, it is the visualization of objects that are broken down and re-assembled through abstractions. Therefore, the abstractions in “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” are what the definition of cubism is.

I'm agree with Titirat that Picasso's painting is different from the others that he use the Cubism style to present his work supporting by "It’s style totally different from all the previous style. Before this great piece of art, many paintings used linear perspective view and had dominated since Renaissance" that Titirat was post before me.In my opinion,I'm also agree with Chanapak that "Analytic cubism (1909–1912) is a style of painting Picasso developed along with Georges Braque using monochrome brownish and neutral colors.

From table 2.2. Ranking of artists by total illustrations page 32, Pablo Picasso is the most striking feature of table 2.2 who painted the most important painting in twentieth-century Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. He was one of the most famous artist in Cubism which throughly transformed modern art. I agree with John Golding who said that, "Cubism was perhaps the most important and certainly the most complete and radical artistic revolution since the Renaissance. New forms of society, changing patronage, varying geographic conditions, all these things have gone to produce over the past five hundred years a succession of different schools, different styles, different pictorial idioms. But none of these has so altered the principles, so shaken the foundations of Western painting as did Cubism."(Golding, Cubism, rev. ed., pg. 15.) And I also agree with the author Galenson who said that, “The painting present radical formal innovations combined wit its thorough disregard for conventional standards of beauty of joint” (p.65). His painting is obvious abstract. Together with Georges Braque, they represented the tangible nature of objects without the use of linear perspective which they regarded as mechanical and arbitrary which is Analytic cubism (1909–1912).

Les Demoiselles d'Avignon the painting that was argue to be the most influential painting in the twentieth century and was painted by one of the most influential artist of all time.. I have to agree that this painting is very bold and give an impact when you look at it. You can tell just by looking that this painting doesn’t only contain one perspective like Harn said” its multiple perspectives that had been fuzzed together into one painting.” To be able to pull that off a lot of research must be taken about the female body, and that is what Picasso did. I have to admire how he did 500-600 of sketches during his study. It takes a lot of perseverance and he must have been very passionate about this painting to finish it that is why I also agree with Titirat’s in mentioning Clement Greenberg’s quote as how quality in art isn’t just how experience an artist is but how much of his conscious and passion he has for the painting itself. And of course I agree with all of TEERANONT’s on the terms of each type of cubism.
Even though this painting is only 2 dimensional you can see that there is depth in it which I find is very surprising since there is no tone in the painting. I believe that this painting was the start of the cubism revolution, not only does it contain the many forgotten art form like the African mask, but there is a strange harmony between the space the distorted feminine figures that produced this revolutionary idea of perspective that unleash a new era. You can tell that this is much more than just a cubism painting like how John Russell described it as “the white whale of modern art: the legendary giant with which we have to come to terms sooner or later.”

I totally agree with the author and everyone above that Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Picasso is one of the most important paintings in art history as George Heard Hamilton stated that “it has been recognized as a watershed between the old pictorial world and the new,” (p.64).
I also believe that one of the reasons that Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is the most important painting in twentieth century because of its perfect combination between each technique which the author observed that “The Demoiselles presented a radical synthesis of a variety of earlier artistic styles that had never previously been considered to be related.” (p.65). By combining all kind of techniques together, the painting becomes very abstract. It creates new perspective and strongly present the way cubism is.
Picasso is clearly changed the perspective of all painting more than other artist during that era. I also agree with Harn that Picasso’s extensive research that he did for this painting is amazing. By doing that, his painting turned out to be a great impact which clarify the new era that artists had a freedom to present their own style.

I totally agree with Harn Srisuwan that Les Demoiselles D'Avignon is one of the most important paints in the history of mankind that dates back in 1907 and has become the classic piece that launched cubism on 20th century art. Picasso is one of my favorite artists of all time. His work portrays five nude female prostitutes from a brothel on Carrer d'Avinyó (Avinyó Street) in Barcelona. This famous artist creates more than 100 sketches and preliminary paintings, wrestling with the problem of depicting three-dimensional space in a two-dimensional picture plane. The way that This work absolutely made the background mix with the main subjects to create the impression that it is as important as the subjects in focus is admirable.
I also like the point from Chanapak who mentioned that, “Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.” Pablo Picasso. This quote can answer the whole question of his artwork. In my opinion this can explain the works that he has done. This painting can speak a thousand words and most of the time there is so much more underneath the lines and the shades that are visible to the naked eye. The Les Demoiselles d' Avignon looks like a common portrait of people in the nude when in fact, the things that are seen on the surface just provide the way for people to tap their curiosity and allow them to explore deeper into what their minds can conceive.

Post  Worakit on Sun Oct 16, 2011 10:59 pm

I totally agree with Khachonyot. I really that the phrase that Chanapak has mentioned earlier, "Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth” - Pablo Picasso. This sentence really exposed the whole idea of art. In my own opinion, no truth could describe art better than this. It could not be denied that we could not capture what we see onto a canvas or an art piece, but at the same time, the meaning of the picture is there, the intention of the artist is solid.

From Picasso's quote, i have no doubt why his painting, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon is so popular in the 20th century. There is no reason why the Demoiselles is not famous now when his quote is still reflecting the truth about art and he had put in so much effort. He did more than just crapping his feeling or what he sees out of his head. Adding on, he did this thing, similarly to perfecting himself. He dissected an object with hundreds of drawings and studies, making him understand more about that object. By doing this over and over again for different objects, he created a work, an intended to be "masterpiece", proven by Table 3.1 that it is the "century's greatest masterpiece."

From my view, I agree that Les Demoiselles D'Avignon is the most important painting of the twentieth century, it's a revoluton of Western art forms to develop Cubism.And I agree with all comments above.

In Nattakul's comment "Picasso changed the appearances of the pictures more than other artists in the world"

I agree, Picasso use another style in that time to show his purpose. Les Demoiselles D'Avignon has many criticisms about revolution the old classic art to new era such as how he use the white light in this painting , how he change the shape of human anatomy , how he paint their faces like the masks , how he use a disconnect space and set the composition of his work.


I'm impressed in the same way as Harn, his comment he told that "Picasso’s extensive research that he did before painting this master piece was amazing. A normal painter that studies the form of human body would not make 400 to 500 studies of what he was about to paint."

I've been hear that Picasso use many references and practice a lot on this work but I never know before that he practice that much!It very impressive to know.


Finally,I want to quote the last paragraph in P.65 to make sure, " As Cubism became the most influential development in the visual art of twentieth century, the Demoiselles stood out more and more clearly as the century's greatest masterpiece. confirms its privileged position among the works of art of the past century."

I agree with khachonyot Yaempradit that Picasso is the great artists, and about his art work, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon that have five nude female prostitutes in the picture which is the most famous and important picture by Pablo Picasso, like George Heard Hamilton observed in the book that “it has been recognized as a watershed between the old pictorial world and the new,”(page 64). So Picasso change the way artist used to painting to the new thing, new and different style from other because of his painting show a impact and the quality of the artist’s work. And I also agree with Harn that he talk about Picasso was the artist that had a freedom to present the work to his own style. That’s why Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is the most important painting of the twentieth century like in the book said. This picture may seem look like a picture that have only nude prostitutes sitting in a room and didn’t mean anything but actually if you look closely, you can see the quality and the line that Picasso have been study and work on it. Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is not just a picture but it’s a story, an idea of art.

I am also agree with the author and every reply comment above that Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Picasso is one of the best painting of the twentieth century. it is an abstract painting of five nude women which there not have this kind of painting much on that period so this is like a beginning of development of cubism painting style. Picasso is also one of the best artist on that century and he had made this new style of painting like what Titirat had mentioned "This painting stood out from other paintings in the twentieth century because it opened the door to the new era, an era where artist is no longer bound by previous preset techniques." I totally agree with this reply.

Roger Fry also has described Picasso as “the painter who has had more influence on modern art than any other single man.” (Pg.38) I totally agree with him and I appreciate Picasso because he is a really intelligent artist that had brought something new to history of art's world. If we talking about cubism I will thinking of Picasso because it is his own and unique style. "The Demoiselles was intended to be a masterpiece."(Pg. 65) I agree with the author that this is one of the masterpiece by Picasso.

Post  Dhitiphan on Sun Oct 16, 2011 11:35 pm

I certainly agree with the author about the painting by Pablo Picasso. The author stated, “Les Demoiselles d'Avignon is clearly the most important painting of the twentieth century” (64). I also agree with Titirat that Les Demoiselles d'Avignon is considered to be the most important painting of the twentieth century with its artistic quality.

The Demoiselles rejects the linear perspective and characterizes the Cubist revolution with the new representation of space and construction of form. As the author stated, “The painting present radical formal innovations combined with its thorough disregard for conventional standards of beauty to jolt the advanced art world” (65). It tells that Picasso breaks every rule and uses his painting style to make the best painting and develop Cubism. In the Demoiselles, Picasso used five nude women which they have five different poses. These five women derived from Cezanne’s painting of bathers, the stylized and distorted features of the figures drew by Gauguin, and on a number of forms of art that Picasso considered primitive. It shows that he combined all elements form different sources to make this masterpiece painting. With this painting, it made the new era that the artists were free to use everything they want and use all techniques in their works.

I like the way that Picasso made 400 to 500 studies for the Demoiselles before he painted the real one. I think it tells me that the important thing to become the great artist and make the best work is I have to get used to the object or thing I want to make. It is not only using the good techniques but I need to understand and get in touch with that object. When I understand it clearly. Then, I can create the wonderful thing with my hands as Picasso did in the past.

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Picasso Pablo is surely the most important painting in the twentieth century. Not only it is the start of cubism but till nowadays we're influenced by this kind of art, especially in graphic designs that are usually involved in geometric shapes. I totally agree with Harn's post that Picasso has the freedom to create his works having his own style, brave to do something different from other artists. Also this painting has more than one perspective like Harn had said, "its multiple perspectives that had been fuzzed together into one painting.”. Further more i'm very impressed with his ambition of studying the form of human's body by sketching up to 400 to 500 studies. There's no doubt why Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is the most memorable and influence painting to our world.

Post  Paphavee Sakdanaraseth on Mon Oct 17, 2011 12:09 am

As we all know that Picasso is one of the Avant-garde artist and the co-founder of Cubism movement, Les Desmoiselles d’Avignon is indeed the masterpiece of his time. Quoting from Guillaume Apollinaire (1913) “Picasso studies an object like a surgeon dissecting a corpse.” He broke the rule for the painting in that time and it isn’t just only the appearance but also its well-analyzed “inside”.

What made a painting so great comes from what the artist done the preparation progress. Before Picasso started to paint the “Demoiselles”, he had done a large number of studies --around 500--to developing the form of Cubism. Picasso was influenced by Cézanne’s work, as well as Gauguin, Primitivism, Greek’s sculpture and many others. He brought out the point he “saw” in each pieces and reconstructed them into the well-planned-and-calculated place. He analyzed every single element he intended to use, adjusted, and then let it speaks what he wanted to. And the result of his well-done research is showing us how excellence he understand the element he used. The abstract forms produced the shapes of 5 women vaguely and also neatly in the same time. The space and shadow are distorted. Figure and ground are combined together. All of these innovated the traditional European style of painting and made the Cubism become one of the most influent movement in that era.

I agree that Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is definitely the most important painting, which make Picasso the greatest artist who initiated the artistic movement of the century and the cubism became the most influential development. As John Russell described it “The white whale of modern art: the legendary giant with which we have to come to terms sooner of later.” (64)
The Demoiselles presented vast radical formal innovations, which is much more than a simple cubism painting. It presented tangible “radical synthesis of a variety of earlier artistic styles that had never previously been considered to be related.” (65) Picasso dramatically announced a new era, in which cause the artists with their own useful thoughts and purposes independently painted from their heart.
The Demoiselles looks just like some distorted 5 nude boring feminine figures with the indifferent tone of colour. However, this painting changed the whole vast revolutions of the century. It is the combination of those unparalleled 400-500 studies or sketching, which he had done. Meanwhile, these hundreds of studies and sketching lead to the developing the form of the well-known Cubism. It is the construction from Picasso’s respectful attempts.
Picasso famously became the greatest artist who is still a well-known unpredictable guy according to his various painting. Eventually, I pleasingly concern about the idea about the Demoiselles that “This is the first appearance of the painting equation.” (65)

By looking at the painting, it gives a really strange inexplicable feeling. Five nude women in the painting
have nothing to do with sexual when it has no sense of provocation. I think Les Demoiselles d'Avignon
is the most influential painting of the twentieth century because its uniquess and stimulation.

I do admire Picasso's 400-500 studies and he did it on 60 square feet size.
Not exaggerating to say it is a masterpiece of his. “The Demoiselles presented a radical synthesis
of a variety of earlier artistic styles that had never previously been considered to be related.”(on p.65)
This is enough why Les Demoiselles d'Avignon is one of the most important art piece of the twentieth century.
Because it creates new way of painting which no one had seen and along with the power of artist, Pablo Picasso.
He made a difference. It was successful "as Cubism became the most influential development in the
visual arts of the twentieth century. It is outstanding and sagaciously painted piece of the genius important
artist, Pablo Picasso.

Picasso Pablo is the most important painting in the twentieth century. He draw many art work and one of his famous work is Les Demoiselles D'Avignon by Picasso Pablo. This is a large oil painting of 1907. This work is portrays five nude female. This picture is development of both cubism and modern art.
And I totally agree with all above comment. I think Picasso has their own style painting. He has the freedom to draw to paint so his work is create in his own style. Moreover I really impress in how ambitious he is. He studying the human body's form by sketching about 400 to 500 studies. This is the reason why every his art work are so popular and have value to remember.
He is one of my inspiration. I will use this case of him when I feel giving up I will think that before he is Picasso who is one of the most popular painting right now he passed and he have to practice hard.

Totally agree with the author, the largest painting by Pablo Picasso, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon is the twentieth century's most important painting. This work also shows the early development of both cubism and modern art as George Heard Hamilton describe it as a 'watershed' between the old and the new pictorial world. To me, it really have influenced to the later cubism.

I also think that what Prangkwan has stated in her post is indeed true that, “This painting changed the whole vast revolutions of the century,” even though it looks just like some distorted 5 nude female prostitute figures with the indifferent tone of colour. Supporting by Roger Fry’s statement that, “Picasso changed the appearances of the pictures more than other artists in the world.”

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon certainly is the most significant painting of the 20th century. By all means Pablo Picasso had succeeded turning the art world dramatically upside down. Painting 5 nude women, staring vigorously to the audience, having it have weird shape and form agreeing to Yoke, it also gives me vibes. As he had planned Les Demoiselles to be his masterpiece, I admire his determination to incoming that in his 400 to 500 sketches and further more in a 60 square feet in size. It was the painting that started the Cubism period and, “announced Cubism’s rejection of liner perspective” (pg. 65). He uses intelligent innovations drastically disregard predictable standards of beauty. I respect Pablo Picasso as he made it possible for the world to develop into a new era, giving a whole new perspective in human mind of viewing art. A young poet who was a friend of Picasso, Andre Salmon stated “He recognized its conceptual nature, comparing the painting’s figures to numbers on the black board, and concluding that this is the first appearance of the painting equation” (pg. 65) As cubism become popular during that time the more Les Demoiselles d’Avignon gained it’s attractiveness to the viewer. It became no doubt in becoming the most influential painting in art history.

I agree with the author and most of the previous replies that Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is one of the most important paintings in this history of art. According to the survey(Table3.2), Demoiselles is ranked first. This can tell us the prominence and well-accepted as the most essential art work in the twentiegh. Or else, there won't be 85percent illustration of the textbooks. With around 400- 500 sketches before Picasso made it through the final piece, it can assures us how much effort he put in the work. The painting has its own unique style, Cubism. According to Titirat's post, Picasso collaborating with Georges Braque had created many great artworks and influenced many artists. The style cubism that he used is a style of painting Picasso developed along with Georges Braque using monochrome brownish and neutral colors. Both artists took apart objects and “analyzed” them in terms of their shapes.

Agree with what Pornsima said of how significant the painting is in the era. Also agree with what most replies above have said about how much effort Picasso had made to sum out his final master piece (Around 400-500 sketches for one master piece).
Picasso, as we known him as father of cubism. He is one of the most artist that look into his surrounding object differently. He created his unique own style, at that time his work did not get acceptable. However, he gives his view of perspective a new whole world to his audience. With that new of perspective that he has made i respect him as one of the most valuable artist in this world. He brings new era of art into this world. Moreover, his bravery is legendary John Russell described Pablo Picasso as “the white whale of modern art: the legendary giant with which we have to come to terms sooner or later.”(pg.64)
