Pablo Picasso was Spanish artist whose true genius was expressed through simple drawings and paintings that half a century after his death remains etched in the contemporarily art world. Picasso was a master of displaying depth in his drawings details by using single line drawing. He had a unique way of defining ‘Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth’ through lines. One of the best pieces that highlight his true virtuoso is the ‘Two Dressed Models’ sketch.
The ‘Two Dressed Models’ was finished in 1933, during the Neoclassicist and Surrealist Period. The piece features two women one standing as the other is seated admiring a sculpture of a head. The women are drawn using the cubism and expressionism. Picasso uses flower patterns on a background painting as well as well-coordinated shades to make the two women the centerpiece of a viewer’s focus. He then proceeds to use spirals to give depth on the women’s hair indicating sophistication. A closer look also highlights the same style on the head sculpture bringing a two-dimensional view of the image. He uses cubism in a manner that allows the viewer to believe that the sculpture is the main attraction and not the women.
Pablo through other art pieces such as ‘le chat’ showed the use of irregulars and somewhat scribbled lines in adding detail to a plain sketch. The same philosophy has been used to give the dress worn by the sited woman more authenticity. He then fully employs his virtuoso in expressionism in adding more detail to the dress offering the perception that the individual is of high class. The ‘Two Dressed Models’ can be reasoned to be Picasso’s most detailed sketch that he uses to show his full genius on using simplistic art in giving a sketch ‘truth’ as he says. Other art paintings are all related in a way unlike this piece that stands unique when it comes to detailing.
