Picasso: The Evolution of Mastery


What do you think of the painting above?

Titled "Science and Charity," it was painted by Picasso in 1897 when he was 15 years old.

The large oil on canvas work measures 78" x 98.2" and is part of the permanent collection of the Museu Picasso in Barcelona.



"The Weeping Woman," painted in 1937.

The oil on canvas work, measuring 29" x 33," is in the collection of the Tate Museum in London.

Compared to his early work up top, there is a reduction in realism and abandonment of demonstrated mastery of light, shadow, and color in favor of cubism, pioneered by Picasso and Braque in the early 20th century.
