Heidegger's Interpretation of Pablo Picasso's Portrait of Gertrude Stein - Heidegger's interpretation of Pablo Picasso's Portrait of Gertrude Stein By several accounts, Gertrude Stein posed for Pablo Picasso more than 90 times during the winter of 1905-6. Each session was never quite correct, with many botched attempts and frustrations. Ultimately Picasso sent her away, stating "I can't see you any longer when I look," then created a new portrait of her nearly a year later without seeing her again. It was regarded as a curious mask-like visage, not really an accurate representation of Stein at the time....   [tags: Art Artisits] 2611 words

Guernica's History - Guernica's History The word art is an encompassing one, vastly interpreted and with multiple definitions. In the case of Picasso's painting Guernica, art informs, educates and expresses. Its power lies in its ability to capture and compel an audience nearly six decades after the modern world's "other" day of infamy. To understand fully the painting that evolved out of the Spanish painter's outrage, one must know its context. "Why do you think I date everything I do. Because it is not sufficient to know an artist's works--it is also necessary to know when he did them, why, under what circumstances" (Picasso)....   [tags: Art Paintings Pablo Picasso Guernica Essays]

Picassos Guernica - Picassos Guernica While it may seem at first glance that Guernica, by Pablo Picasso, is a political statement against the tragedy of the bombing of a small Basque town during the Spanish Civil War, this painting holds connotations beyond the syllogism for which it is given credit. Picasso, unlike Romantic period artists, who are attributed to great political propaganda, is not suggesting an emotionally based judgment should be made about the contemporary event, but rather a focus on the contemplation of the forces of good and evil at work throughout timeless humanity....   [tags: Essays Papers]

Much the people of the French Revolution (1789-1795), people of Berlin (who were being subjected to many rules and regulations) wanted to throw off the oppression. Just as in the French Revolution, the people thought that the only way to gain the feeling of freedom was to revolt in every area of their lives, an act that gave birth to the movement of Dadaism. Dadaists believed that sound thoughts and organized processes were the cause of the war, so the Dadaists created art that seemed out of order and almost illogical (Kleiner 835)....   [tags: Theology ]

Aestheticism prioritizes, if not entirely isolates, the artistic and technical value of an artwork over its moral implications.
