When a simple man in the street looks at this very canvas, for a long time he cannot understand where the violin is and where the guitar is. And having considered it for a long time, the average person will still move away from the canvas, having understood nothing so. Although in fact Picasso portrayed here not so much these two instruments, but their music, their soul. And as you can see, their souls are the same, just the feed is different. But still, if you are very formally looking at the canvas, you can notice both a guitar and a violin.
In principle, in the manner of his painting, Picasso did not go far from his friend Dali. But only if the latter can somehow somehow decipher his canvases, then with Picasso this is somewhat more difficult. You feel intuitively that this is about music, but the music itself cannot be transmitted, but the artist has proven that it is quite real. And it conveyed the same, but in a different way – of light and pattern, confusion and harmony. Somehow together and not apart! But it turned out something harmonious and musical and passionate, despite the calm colors.
Picasso is true to himself, you never wait for a normal portrait or drawing, or landscape or still life. It will always be abstract, it will always be visually defiant, bold and never answer your questions immediately. You just have to stand in front of the canvas and think: “What are you, a great creature?” And if imagination plus your education gave you the right answer, then you understand the idea of Picasso. And to understand his thoughts is to comprehend that which is unknown to many, and if this happens, you can safely enlist yourself in philosophers.
It is just that not everyone is given the genius of Picasso, not everyone can hear his music, his thought, understand his fantasy, and therefore for many years he was considered, to say the least, strange. And it’s good that they managed to recognize during their lifetime as a great master. At least he realized that he began to understand.
