For Centuries, artists have used the nude images of a man and a woman to express the notion of beauty as well as the natural human quality. Most nude art forms are observed in Greek, French and Roman art. During his time in France, one of Europe’s finest artist in history, Pablo Picasso, adopted the art developing nude masterpieces.
Nonetheless, Picasso was famed as a minimalist who used Cubism as well as Expressionism to give depth to his paintings and sketches. This was a style world apart from the art forms used in presenting nudist art at the time. Consequently, this was the birth on a new artistic style best represented by the ‘Three Nudes and an Anemone’ master piece. Picasso’s greatness stemmed from two factor the first being the ability express deep imagery while using a minimalist philosophy and the second was using a variety of mediums to display his genius. Nonetheless, not very many individuals appreciate the fact that Picasso had the ability to switch his style in reference to the preference of his subject while remaining pure to his style.
The ‘Three Nudes and an Anemone’ is one of the few occasions the world had to see his mastery in transformation. The image is centered on three nude females sited on the floor. The first notable impression is Picasso’s use of the minimalist single line style that is clean and clear. However, there is a variation of his work and the new path taken. The woman sited on the extreme left of the sketch is drawn using significant simplicity while the one in the middle of the image has more detail; the eyes and nose have been well defined giving life to the image.
On the floor is a bowl of Bowl of Anemones that display significant expressionism as more detailed patterns have been use to highlight the flowers as well as the bowl. The picture frame is also used to add detailing making the nude women the center of the piece. Unlike other nude imagery that use color to find depth, Picasso uses the surrounding plain surfaces of the canvas to give the viewer a chance to see the details of the nude female bodies.
