Art One - Picasso and van Gogh videos

Image result for pablo picasso paintings


Watch the following video about Picasso.  Which painting is your favorite and which is your least favorite and why?  Picasso was the founder of the Cubism art movement along with George Braque.  Advances in art had been made by the Impressionists (Monet, Renior, Degas) and Post Impressionists (van Gogh, Seurat, Gauguin) to allow room for this new way of painting.
