Pablo Picasso - Les Demoiselles d'Avignon

Oil on canvas

Melody Geis
I learnt that the two faces on the right represented African masks and the erotic "other"

Chan Hsiao
I saw the Picasso exhibition at the Tate and it blew me away!

Renea Schroedel
Great piece of art

Noelle Trépanier
great positions. I love the crouching figure

Matthew Whitener
Picasso really mutilates the female body

Steven Mask
This really is a fantastic painting

Jaime Herrera
This opened the door to abstractionism. Is there such a word?

Emma Herkes
The first time I saw this in St. Peters in Rome, finally actually stood in front of it, its beauty moved me to tears. Nothing had ever done that to me before. No picture in a book comes close to the emotion of this pieta live.

Stanley Allen
I live in Rome, Now there is an anti damage plexiglass screen in front of this fantastic sculpture An effort to avoid damage from non sensative hooligans

Stanley Allen
Janime Herrera I think we must give that title to Consable

Stanley Allen
Jaime Herrera that should read our ENGLISH CONSTABLE Jaime usually referred to as opening a wndow.

if you are in Los Angeles see all PICASSO arts in LACMA (Los Angeles Museums of arts)

Yes, they do represent African masks.. Cubism, the movement itself was inspired by African sculpture.

It was so great to see this piece in NYC.

picaso s ''guernica'' nevertheless remains the greater shit ever painted .And the worst is that it passed for a masterpiece!!!!

Teodora Stoica
five diaries.

Teodora Stoica
Cinci jurnale.
Cinci vieti.
Cinci mărgăritare 
într-un colier încântător
șoptesc, una alteia
visele lor de domnișoare.
Ele asculta în tăcere 
trăirile fiecăruia și 
învață împreună 
cum să nu repete greșelile 
unora dintre ele și 
să meargă pe firul de mătase 
al celor care au reușit în viață.
de Teodora Stoica-Ti:

Five diaries.
Five lives.
Five pearls
into a delightful necklace
whisper to each other
their dreams of ladies.
They listened in silence
individual experiences and
learning together
how not to repeat the mistakes
of some of them and
to walk on silk the thread
of those who have succeeded in life.

"Les demoiselles d'avignon" is so called: a bitches house in "calle de Avigno" in Barcelona, near The Ramblas that Pablo PICASSO attended....
I don't like it.

FORMACOLOR artistic what you do not like: painting or brothels, legalized?
I love on all, three: ie, I admire and these women beautiful, sacrificial lambs on the altar of conjugal love.
But, who is your opinion, about "Ladies" which
is prostituted of pleasure for they themselves?

Jose Gabriel Peláez Ibañez
Maravillosa obra!!

Jaime Herrera
After his friends criticized the hell out of this work, he kept it in his studio for years with its face to the wall. Perhaps he knew it would eventually be seen as one of his greatest pieces.

Lucio Borrazzo
It' simply amazing.

"Les demoiselles d'Avignon" is a masterpiece of the great cubist painter, because it reflects, philosophical psychological drama of these women born under a star fateful caused by a ruthless fate to sell body and their soul to Lucifer, who through exploiting them, maximum attract opportunity the army, a large mass of vulnerable men and strong ..

Jaime Herrera
Young ladies of the night. Picasso knew them.

Teodora Stoica
of course, Jaime Herrera. But only, Picasso accounted their drama, human into a occult interpretation, if you look at the whole picture carefully.

Ulas Romanov
Extremely brilliant!

Bonjour à Toutes et à Tous, je ne comprends pas que ce tableau ait à ce point défrayé la chronique, par la suite, puis donné lieu à controverse; je trouve cette "barbaque de bordel" plutôt triste et siniste; mais ne vous étonnez pas de mon Regard, il est exceptionnel et peu moutonnier...

Teodora Stoica
We all know that the painter had weakness for women and he had no embarrassed in of reveal and of paint them their beauty, naked, but in this picture,
the author is surpasses on itself, because the protagonists and their job, debatable and contravresat and today, are the proof by bashfulness and their shame in the world, elegant evoked for the first time in pictorial art by Pablo Picasso, after Alexndre Dumas son in literature with "The Lady of the Camellias", who shook the world.
"Les Demoiselles d'Avignon", the mirror of forfeiture the woman, according to some, symbolizes in fact the feminine sacrifice, sentimental and emotional in favor of those who have power and money..

I do like your seeing Teodora.
Bitches are a real fact, and Pablo PICASSO attends the bitches house Calle de Avigno (Avignon street) in barcelona, near the Ramblas; an artistic creator has to say his point of vue with brushes & painting; he has done it.
I don't like it.
Barcelona is a great harbour, with sailors: for example, when I spent some days, there was a very HOT AND HARD ATMOSPHERE on the Ramblas: bitches are looking for customers, and I saw an american man of the Navy a knife seeks in the thorax (blood, blood, blood...). after a struggle..impressive ! Perhaps I have to translate this scene with brushes and painting.
My walking side into The BARRIO CINO (a very special place of the night in Barcelona) was dangerous (People says I take risks...), but I did it: drunks, alcool (there is a coffee where nineteen french artists drank apocalyptic vue on Human condition... . A man have to know all these things !!!
A real artist, too.
To end, more quiet, we have a drink at the !ZZurich coffee (top of the Ramblas), an intellectual place.

thanks, FORMACOLOR. And a Happy New Year!

wonderful and amazing

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.
