Picasso’s paintings were not recognized by anyone for a long time, since no one understood them at all, and those who found a certain charm in them could be counted on the fingers of one hand. This continued until he began to write in his own style, called Cubism. And his best paintings were painted at an early time in his life, and among them is “Violin”, the year of writing, which is 1912. Moreover, the artist, as always, moves away from the traditional image of objects, he prefers to give the viewer the opportunity to comprehend what he saw and compose a complete image.
So the violin is disassembled into hundreds of small parts, which are possible for everyone to put together. Moreover, all the individual details of this violin are rallied together, each of them is drawn with very high accuracy and detail. The artist’s goal was not the image of the violin itself, but the desire to capture the music that can be obtained using the violin. Music that sounds in sync with the work of the artist himself, carried away at that time by music and musical instruments.
The painting is placed in an ovoid oval, according to the artist's idea, it was the oval that was supposed to remind the viewer of the violin. In order to show the viewer that this is really a Picasso violin wedges wooden elements into the picture, which serve as a wonderful reminder that before the look is a real violin, which only a thinker can see.
The painting was written in the style of cubism, but this is not early cubism, but its more mature understanding, which the artist will express in subsequent paintings, all while also setting his fans an unsolvable task, and the question is: what did the great master in this picture want to say ? Picasso had several similar paintings, since this period of his work was entirely devoted to music, and therefore a year later in 1913 the painting “Violin and Grapes”, “Clarinet and Violin”, and several more paintings of the same subject appeared.
Having lived a long and fruitful life, the artist changed many directions in art, but cubism still remains the pinnacle of his work.
