Describe the Picasso painting above. In other words paint his picture IN WORDS. Say briefly what makes it “modernist”.
Picasso’s Nude in a Rocking chair. Rejects all certainty. Shuns traditinalist ideas as outdated. Rejection of realism. The embodiment of modernist art.
Sickly green as the blackness comes in; creeping, consuming. Yonder, a glimpse of something blue, the colour of past certainties with no place in this picture. In this world. Memories of curves and smooth lines of yesterday- now only angry lines and crosses.
A warped figure- the naked woman. Mal-alligned shapes merged, no, forced into a being- but not a human being-for what does it mean to be human? Vibrant all-consuming colours contrasting the pale figure of a woman. Placeless and lost in the ever-changing path that is life.
Faceless and naked. Anger resounding through the think lines of her breasts and stomach- a new kind of face to put on for the world. Not an ideal beauty, but a beauty nevertheless for society has no bearing on this world.
Truthful. Crude. Modernist.
