Picasso The Cubist Exhibit - Inspired by Pablo Picasso - by k Madison Moore

Picasso The Cubist

Inspired by Pablo Picasso

SOLD - Commission

Art Museum Collection Series

Miniature Paintings within Paintings

This is my second Picasso Exhibit since I started my Art Museum Exhibit Paintings.
Before I attempt an exhibit, or even start my design I read about the artist. Then when I'm painting I feel a sense of connection. All kinds of things go through my head while I'm painting. I wonder what they were thinking when they designed the piece and more of why they chose a certain color or stroke. Every time I complete my inspiration from Picasso, I understand more what he meant when he said,"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life."

12 x 9 inches, Gallery wrapped linen canvas.
The Smallest Miniature Painting within this Painting is 2 x 3'
and the largest is 3 x 4 inches.
The statue on the pedestal is a figure from one of Picasso's paintings.

I did not paint viewers into this exhibit as I felt that the subjects in the paintings
looked like they we all viewing each other.

Commission Projects Welcome

If you are interested in a personal Commission it can be one of my paintings that you saw and liked but didn't have a chance to purchase it because it was sold before you had a chance. You may have a similar painting or something you would like to have painted in my style or we can work together to design a painting just for you. Please email me with your interests. There is never any obligation.

Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973) was an artistic virtuoso who co-founded Cubism, and produced an astounding 20,000 paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures during his brilliant 70-year career. Picasso’s unparalleled body of work was so vast, and its phases so unique, that art historians have divided it into specific periods. A child prodigy, Picasso took advanced classes at the Royal Academy of Art in Barcelona when he was only 15. His revolutionary Cubist works, with their distorted shapes and fragmented forms, established art as a genre that does not need to literally represent reality. Zealously embracing every medium from primitive art to sketches to Surrealism, Picasso had an unrivaled influence upon 20th century art.


Cubism was a 20th century avant-garde art movement, pioneered by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, that revolutionized European painting and sculpture, and inspired related movements in music and literature. The first branch of cubism, known as Analytic Cubism, was both radical and influential as a short but highly significant art movement between 1908 and 1911 in France. In its second phase, Synthetic Cubism, (using synthetic materials in the art) the movement spread and remained vital until around 1919, when the Surrealist movement gained popularity.
English art historian Douglas Cooper describes three phases of Cubism in his seminal book The Cubist Epoch. According to Cooper there was Early Cubism, (from 1906-1908) during which time the movement was initially developed in the studios of Picasso and Braque; the second phase being called High Cubism, (from 1909 to 1914) during which time Juan Gris emerged as an important exponent; and finally Cooper referred to Late Cubism (from 1914 to 1921) as the last phase of Cubism as a radical avant-garde movement.

In cubist artworks, objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted form—instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create the shallow ambiguous space, one of cubism's distinct characteristics.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cubism
