Pablo Picasso. Violin and Grapes. 1912. Oil on canvas.
I picked Pablo Picasso’s Violin and Grapes as an example of modern art. This painting is an example of cubism which Picasso is considered to be a co-founder. I like the simple colors used in this painting. When searching for a painting I liked by Picasso, I found this one interesting. At first glance, I didn’t really understand what the painting was. I concluded that it was a wooden object and eventually realized it was violin but not until I read the name did I notice the grapes. I like the way the painting is composed and the almost symmetrical feel it has.
