Pablo Picasso - Art

Art

Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
— Pablo Picasso

Picasso’s work is often categorized into periods. While the names of many of his later periods are debated, the most commonly accepted periods in his work are the Blue Period (1901–1904), the Rose Period (1905–1907), the African-influenced Period (1908–1909), Analytic Cubism (1909–1912), and Synthetic Cubism (1912–1919).

In 1939–40 the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, under its director Alfred Barr, a Picasso enthusiast, held a major and highly successful retrospective of his principal works up until that time. This exhibition lionized the artist, brought into full public view in America the scope of his artistry, and resulted in a reinterpretation of his work by contemporary art historians and scholars.

Famous quotes containing the word art:

    But sometimes everything I write
    with the threadbare art of my eye
    seems a snapshot,
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    I prithee, daughter, do not make me mad.
    I will not trouble thee, my child; farewell:
    We’ll no more meet, no more see one another.
    But yet thou art my flesh, my blood, my daughter—
    Or rather a disease that’s in my flesh,
    Which I must needs call mine.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The art of the parenthesis is one of the greatest secrets of eloquence in Society.
    —Sébastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort (1741–1794)
