Las Meninas by Pablo Picasso

The work “Las Meninas. According to Velasquez “- a kind of variation on the well-known cute story, the variation is very bold and highly original. But first, let us return to the source.

Remembering the most famous painting of Diego Velazquez ‘Las Meninas, “or as it is called”

The Family of Philip IV », before the eyes of a beautiful girl gets accurate – Infanta Margarita, surrounded by suites. Also comes to mind, and revolutionary innovation in the portrait genre – the royal couple is depicted on the canvas through the reflection in the mirror. “Las Meninas” by Velazquez – it is such a family idyll of the royal family.

Nothing like that in the film there is no Picasso. To date, there are numerous transcripts of various professionals from the arts, seeking to explain the picture of Picasso, the great innovator and a great original. The truth is that the common opinion, the meaning is not written, and everything else – it’s arguments and reasoning.

Above the picture of the author I worked for more than 4 months and has created a series of scene options, experimenting and transforming well-known story. On the canvas, you can see almost all the characters from the painting Velazquez – Margarita, court ladies, dwarfs, Marshal of the yard and even a dog. Picasso deliberately contrasted his realistic style of the original style plastic characters.

Picasso – is the transformation of space by converting elements in geometric shapes that create a different reality already.

The researchers say that each image in the painting by Picasso was considered from two diametrically opposite sides – the sides of good and evil. For example, the two characters in the lower right corner of the picture, which at first glance seem to be unfinished – it is a dog and a boy Nikolasito. On the one hand, they can symbolize aggression and anger, on the other hand, a dog can be considered white innocent creature, but the boy – his childhood and spontaneity.

Picasso’s painting “Las Meninas” – it is not easy to complex and controversial philosophical work with many symbolic meanings, but also a vivid example of how work can transform the famous master whose thinking and vision devoid of barriers, and the imagination is subject only unlimited creative freedom. Picasso was able to create a completely new reality, to reveal the secret of which he fully trusted the audience.
