"Mediterranean Landscape"

Pablo Picasso created this oil on canvas painting in 1952 during his 70 years of artwork production. He is considered the co-founder of cubism and impacted 20th century art greatly. He used his geometric shapes to create a realistic image. If you look closely at this painting you can pick out all of the triangles, circles, squares, etc, but if youre looking at it from a distance you can see the picture as a whole and see that its a landscape. His selection of color also makes part of the painting "pop out" and makes it bright and pleasant to look at. Color selection was just another one of Picasso's talents.
