One is the giver~ and one the receiver! It's like that, isn't it? This is one of my favorites-I love the simplicity of the image and the meaning-whatever one might see.
HUmmmm, After sitting thinking here like Debra has said, one is a giver and the other is the receiver. I can't imagine anything else, from this drawing. I'll have to study more, to see what I come up with.
Debra,the subtleties lie in not knowing which is the giver or the recipient of such pretty flowers. I always love to see the reaction of students when we look at it closely and try to decipher - in the end both feel the joy that a simple bouquet can bring to both hands~pveTonia-next time you are the giver or the recipient of such a lovely bouquet, you shall be reminded of this painting and the joy of flowers and art!pve
Expressed with ease, often hard to do. I'm learning today acceptance as I am hiring help in the back part of the garden I built with such young enthusiasm and now is a bit of a challenge with my recently torn rotator cuff and rehabbing foot surgery. At 60, I suspect this is just the beginning. Long sighhhhhh.
I instantly see myself as a child giving my grandmother a handfull of flowers (weeds). Love the panting. Carla
I see 2 hands holding flowers. One giving and one receiving too.
Friendship, simplicity, beauty, love, sharing. A Picasso favorite as well as his very simple Peace Dove!KarenaArt by Karena
Interesting. I see it as a coming together....it seems to me there are more than 2 people holding on to this arrangement. And the flowers seem like suns to me...and it seems like wheat instead of stems. So.....sharing/coming together. Funny, here I am...and the Picasso Museum is closed for renovations! I believe his paintings are at the Moma ---so I guess I'll see him when i get home! xo
I too see it as little colorful suns and sprigs of wheat mingled with a few weeds. I've never thought this was a give & take kinda piece. For some reason it always seemed to look like a haphazard & loosely gathered bunch of stems being held by a child.
Spredding sunshine from one to the other! Picasso is such a master of reducing it to essential symbols without loosing the beauty of it all!
Thanks to each of you for commenting on Picasso's artwork here. I love the fact that the hands holding the flowers are simple lines, and that the flowers are the focus. Next time you bring a bunch of fresh cut flowers, watch the hands that want to hold them.There is something magical about flowers in our hands.pve
