Artists of the Day- Picasso and Braque (click on image to see more)

I’ve never been a big fan of Cubism. Oh…I think it’s an important part of art history. I appreciate it on an intellectual level but it’s always left me a bit cold. Maybe it’s the lack of color…all that brown and grey. Maybe it’s the endless, unreadable boxes. I remember going to a huge Picasso show at MOMA with many rooms of his Cubist paintings. It was overwhelmingly dreary. Never mind. Picasso and Braque worked together…competitively…but together on the development of Cubism. The first two are by Braque. The following three by Picasso.
