About Picasso – Pencil Holder – Faces
This Picasso pencil holder is a representation of the Fanny face from the Gavilla de Fabulas sin amor. “At the age of 6, I was able to paint like an adult, however I had to be 70 to learn how to paint like a child”, said Pablo Picasso winking to these colorful and vivid illustrations he made to the book “Gavilla des Fábulas sin amor” by the Spanish writer and Nobel-prize winner Camilo José Cela (1916-2002). All the illustrations were created in a day, on June 13, 1960, in the studio in Cannes.
Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter and sculptor, who remains one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. He is mostly recognized for the Cubist movement, which he co-founded with Georges Braque. Eventually, his masterpiece Guernica is a pivotal example of this.
Firstly, Guernica displays the intense horror of the Spanish civil war and its impact on the city of Guernica. Then, Pablo’s exceptional style helped the world understand the horrors of the war. Finally, it also brought Spain into the forefront of the European mind.
Through Cubism, Picasso showed the world how two-dimensional art could be seen in a number of ways. The dimensions and angles are an abstraction of all the essential features of a scene with only their base shapes. Picasso’s style transpires his free spirit, eccentricity, and a complete disregard for any criticism of his work. In addition, this modern approach to painting far ahead of his time supported Picasso’s indelible impact on the art world to this very day. More details on Picasso – Pencil Holder – Faces :
