Pablo Picasso ~ Fruit Dish, 1908-09 (oil on canvass) This piece is very intriguing, I think that Picasso used colour and tone well and successfully conveyed to the viewer a unique and interesting fruit dish. As for the background, the table is long and reflective of Picasso's style, however it doesn't take too much away from the fruit bowl but the lime (or perhaps apple?) still directs the viewers eye to the whole image.
Self Portrait by Pablo Picasso, a Spanish painter and co-founder of the Cubist movement who lived between 1881 and 1973. The portrait of a young man who seems old beyond his years. He is, without doubt, parodying one of Van Gogh's self-portraits with this air of austerity and a heightened sense of the macabre.
