Picasso And Perugino
The Picasso and the Perugino paintings in the art book are in no way really
similar; they are infact very different aside from the fact that the main piece
of the painting is a female. The colors used in Picasso’s Weeping Woman are a
lot of Brights. But the colors in Perugino’s The Virgin and Child with Saints
uses nice colors, neither bright nor dull but there are many different colors in
both of the paintings. I feel as though that there is much more detail in the

Perugino then the Picasso using much more texture as well as detail in the
people in the painting and the landscape. The Picasso is an up close cubism type
of painting and is very distorted but that is the intention of the painter. As
for the Perugino there is much detail in the painting showing fine details in
the clothing the people the ground it is a very in-depth painting. Comparison

Color: The Picasso has yellows, reds, blues, greens, black, purple and white.

Picasso uses his colors in a pretty uneven manner he uses 3-4 colors on the face
of the Weeping woman in stead of the usual black white colors of the usual
person. Personally, I love the naked picture of the woman. The Perugino has more
colors then I can really count but he didn’t use brights its more or less just
regular colors but he uses the colors great to get the details of the painting
out and helps you get a better feel for the painting. Some of the colors he uses
are lots of blues, whites, greens, and some reds. The colors in both are very
well chosen I think that the colors chosen are what really make the paintings
what they have come to be "two of the best paintings made by each respective
artiest." Lines: In the Perugino there aren’t really too many lines in this
painting. I feel that this painting is right out front as in he doesn’t try to
hide any thing some painters put hidden messages in there paintings or what they
paint means something different then it really looks it doesn’t appear that
this is what Perugino was going for. The Picasso on the other hand this was done
when he changed his style to cubism this is when people say he "lost it". He
uses a lot of lines in this painting because he is going for the look of sorrow
and being broken up so he uses a lot of lines to get the broken up and
distorted. Look in the painting it looks like he takes the painting after it is
painted and just cuts it up and moves pieces around to get what ever effect he
feels like he wants in the painting. I think that Picasso love to use all
shapes. I like the fact that both of them have triangles they both us them but
the Picasso uses them as well as lines squares and many other shapes. The
squares make the paintings so much stronger they give it a different feeling a
feeling of order and balance. I think this is what draws me to these paintings
in one there is so much detail and in the other there is a very good amounts of
shapes. The one I like more out of the two has got to be by far is Picasso’s

Weeping Woman. I like this painting the most out of the who is because he is my
favorite painter out of all that I know I like his stuff because like I said it
looks like he just paints it, and just cuts it up. I like how it looks abstract

I like the odd I guess I could say. I like how he uses shapes that have no name
and our out of wacko I guess that’s what I’ve always liked his work. I like
his stuff more when he changed his ways and started with cubes and wacky colors
as well as the Brights. The things that make Perugino’s The Virgin and Child
with Saints one of my favorites out of the Art Book are; all the wonderful
colors and the triangle that he has using the people at one big triangle pretty
much taking up the whole canvas. I also like the texture and the life of the
people they look really real like the eyes you can actually see them the cloths
they ware
