Pablo Picasso - Dora Maar with Cat

Oil on canvas

Lucy Maliszewski
Picasso's women are always so interesting!

pushing the limits of ridiculous is not the best sign or compliment for an artist

Donna Marchesano
Picasso loved Dora, In fact she was one of the few artists he revered


Ruhannah Alam
I think it is quite a silly depiction of a human face. If a five year old painted something like that , they would be sent to the child psychologist.

Lucy Maliszewski
Picasso was always pushing the limit on form -when working out the idea of cubism or other art styles- he experimented which is why he has so many great works- I don't think he meant for this painting to look just like Dora- but to capture her essence- to play with color and lines and see what develops- I don't think he was concerned with the final results in every work but wanted to learn from the experience

Ruhannah Alam
Thank you, I do appreciate your effort to explain, but to me, it smacks of pure arrogant egotistical self indulgence, with no regard for the integrity of the person, a typical kind of misogyny that men indulge in, calling it. ' art'. Do what is her essence, according to him? That she is a mangled distorted mess?

Lucy Maliszewski
Maybe she was- but it's great to have different opinions

Ruhannah Alam
More likely, he was, not. Just beauty, but mangled messes are in the eye of the beholder !
And yes, I agree with you, it is healthy to hear different points of view. By the way, I also object to that widely used term, so and so'swomen. Not surprisingly, it echoes the societal fact that half the population for much of human history wee indeed treated like objects and possessions, counted with the cattle. These male artists who love to break convention, rarely go very deep!

Wonderful painting!

nice and good

Abstract Expressionism
All these Art Emperors live based on the death Artist’s Legacies with no doubt. While the Artist is alive, even they don't accept his/her call in any time. Please don’t give me wrong. you can test them yourselves. Mail them for a review or exhibition of your artworks, you will find your applications in a trashcan quite soon. They live in nice mansions or a House of Art with proudly call Art Galleries/Museums and the artists are suffering of poverty and struggling to pay the bills to live. Well. That kind of artist will be very lucky if he/she sells some paintings to those Emperors/Art Collectors, and they call him/her back in 5 to ten years if he/she is still alive or death. The good news will be if he/she is death to make some money but tons of money. They take your paintings and make their own stories about them and make them as an iconic painting and that is the time that their lottery matches for a jackpot. Basically, we all work for them for free. When they call their selves the Emperors, another meaning of that is the Slavery Masters. We create works of art until we are alive with no respect or appreciation and the end, they take advantage of them mercilessly. I am not venge it to discuss deeply but reality is the word of Lord. In the whole history of art, Mark Rothko was realized the exact meaning of Art Emperors which I am talking about.

not an art!

Pablo Picasso pintó una nariz grande, así lo expresó Leonardo en el precepto.
