Pablo Picasso, Bottle of Vieux Marc, Glass, Guitar and Newspaper, 1913
The piece of art work above is a collage created by the famous Pablo Picasso in 1913. Picasso arranges a still life of a bottle, a guitar, and newspaper with a variety of sundry materials. Although all the these cuttings seem to be out of place, I believe that when you look at it closely they all are unified in some way. I think that Picasso meant for this to happen. I also believe that Picasso intended for this piece of work to have mulitple view points and different areas for which the eye can view. Instead of focusing on the color of the piece of art, Picasso focused more on the nature of the shapes.
