15th - 20th Cent. Masters
Painter and Model
In Painter and Model, Picasso depicts this timeless scene in a style that is pure "Picasso." As we have come to expect, he chooses to explore the unknown rather than making a more classic artist and model depiction with detailed line work. Instead, the bodies of the painter and model take on a more cubist shape, forming a graceful dance of light and dark and fluid curves, creating a sense of movement and energy that stand out from the traditional artist's rendering of the subject matter. Using a minimalist approach, Picasso makes a powerful visual statement that conveys the moment effectively while powerfully standing out from his illustrious counterparts artistically.
