Getting Involved

"Picasso's work between 1900 and 1905 was generally flat, emphasizing the two-dimensional character of the painting surface. Late in 1905, however, he became increasingly interested in pictorial volume. This interest seems to have been stimulated by the late paintings of Cézanne, ten of which were shown in the 1905 Salon d'Automne. In Picasso's Boy Leading a Horse (1905) and Woman with Loaves (1906) the figures are vigorously modeled, giving a strong impression of their weight and three-dimensional. "

He was thinking of something new.

Choices & Results

" Using Surrealism Picasso helped to create a major artistic movement: the distorted figures and dark, subconscious quality of many of his works. Although once again Picasso's own take on the trend was immediately identifiable...

Picasso's greatest Surrealist painting had nothing to do with subconscious drives. Guernica (1937) was a response to Germany's bombing, abetted by Spain's right-wing government, of the Basque town of Guernica; over 1,600 innocent civilians died in the bombing, and an enraged Picasso immediately began to draw on his entire artistic vocabulary to create a painting that would reflect the horror of the event. After this he became a celebrity in the art world. "
