Transcript of Pablo Picasso
collectors Leo and Gertrude Stein. Gertude showed
his paintings in her salon in Paris. Many people became
a fan of his work. In 1907, he joined an Art Gallery that
had recently opened up in Paris In 1904, he met Fernande Olivier,
a Bohemian artist who became his mistress.
She appears in many of his Rose period paintings. After some fame and some fortune, Picasso left Olivier for Marcelle Humbert, he called her Eva Gouel. Picasso included declarations of his love for Eva in many Cubist works. He was hurt by her death from illness at the age of 30 in 1915. He began to have many affairs with different women after her devestating death. In the summer of 1918, Picasso married Olga Khokhlova, a ballerina with Sergei Diaghilev’s troupe. Picasso was designing a ballet, Parade, in Rome. They had a son named Paulo, who would grow up to be a motorcycle racer and chauffeur to his father. In 1927 Picasso met 17-year-old Marie-Thérèse Walter and began a secret affair with her. His marriage to Khokhlova soon ended in separation rather than divorce because the French law required an even division of property in the case of divorce, and Picasso did not want Khokhlova to have half his wealth. The two remained legally married until Khokhlova’s death in 1955. Picasso continued his relationship with Marie-Thérèse Walter and fathered a daughter, Maia, with her. Marie-Thérèse lived in the vain hope that Picasso would one day marry her, and hanged herself four years after Picasso’s death. During the second World War, Picasso’s artistic style didn't fit the Nazi views of art, so he was not able to show his works during this time. He continued what he was doing anyways. This is a painting of one of
Picasso's lovers, Dora Maar.
She was a photographer and painter. In 1994, Picasso's new mistress was Francoise Gilot, he had become bored of Cora Maar. Francoise was 40 years younger than him. Gilot and Picasso began to live together.
The eventually had two children, Claude
born in 1947 and Paloma born in 1949. His relationship with
Gilot ended in 1953,
when she and the children
walked out on him. In Gilot's book, Life with Picasso, she explains the breakup as being because of abusive treatment and Picasso's infidelities. At the age of 14, he painted "Portrait of Aunt Pepa". Picasso's Work His first paintings were landscape in non naturalistic violet and green tones. Picasso’s Blue Period (1901–1904) consists of paintings rendered in shades of blue and blue-green, only occasionally warmed by other colors. The Rose Period (1904–1906) is characterized by a more cheery style with orange and pink colors. It features many circus people, acrobats and harlequins known in France as saltimbanques. Many of his paintings in the Rose Period were invluenced by his lover, Fernande Olivier. Picasso’s African-influenced Period (1907–1909)
was inspired by African artifacts. This period led into Picasso's Cubism Period Analytic cubism (1909–1912) is a style of painting Picasso developed along with Georges Braque using brownish and neutral colors. Picasso's Classicism and surrealism was of
Picasso producing work in a neoclassical style.
His paintings were of his interpretation of
World War I and the Spanish Civil War. "It isn’t up to the painter to define the symbols. Otherwise it would be better if he wrote them out in so many words! The public who look at the picture must interpret the symbols as they understand them.” -Pablo Picasso (about his paintings) Picasso's later works were reinterpretations of the art of the great masters. He still continued to paint, but he became more daring and used more colors. He also started a collection of ceramics. He made a few statues in his days.
This statue is outside a building in Chicago.
He was one of 250 sculptors who exhibited in the 3rd Sculpture International held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in mid-1949. Pablo Picasso died on April 8, 1973 in Mougins, France while he and his wife Jacqueline entertained friends for dinner. His final words were,
“Drink to me, drink to my health, you know I can’t drink any more.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pablo_Picasso
