Pablo Picasso. Guernica 1937
Picasso was infamously known for his unrelenting independence in painting and thinking. His painting style was called Cubism, a style of painting and sculpture developed in the early 20th century, characterized by emphasis on formal structure, the reduction of natural forms to their geometrical equivalents. A represented object independently.
My definition was “If you’ll notice there are broad definitive lines, shapes, and free space all masterfully done.”
When I first studied one of his most famous paintings titled Guernica in 1937 I was drawn to write the following verse or phrase “All at the dinner table an aberration of misfits, so what if one departs from the “Normal”, or deviates from the others. I’ll say it I’m ostentatiously virtuous.” Well my phrase is characterized by independence similar to the description of Cubism. ©Natalie Keshing
