Exhibit Blue Photos

Picasso (Buste de Femme) 1902, and Utagawa Yoshiharu (Large Elephant from a Foreign Country 1862) are the two pictures I have selected from the exhibit. Let’s start with Pablo Picasso’s first photograph. This picture I have chosen has been part of the Blue Era, a concept for Pablo Picasso’s works. These paintings, made in various shades of blue by Pablo Picasso, represent emotions such as instability, poverty and sorrow. This oil is a lithograph, which is made on a steel or metal plate with oil and water. Let us dive in this way forwards In the first it depicts a prison woman who evidently has a depressive emotion. I love how Pablo Picasso uses various colors and blue colours. You can really see the perspective of the lady’s head looking down, as it is so much in the portrait of the lady. By using a stance and the look of the woman, the portrait painting and blue j are really an expression of emotion

Going on to the second pic, I have chosen Katsushika Hokusai in Sagami, c. 1830 – 1834fromtheseries 36 Views of Mount Fuji, b. 1760 – 1834. This image was made by means of woodblock printing, a technique for printing text, pictures or patterns used mostly in East Asia and originating in China as textile and paper printing. It is precisely 14.5 cm. This print is 9.5 cm. This piece of art was designed to depict Mount Fuji and rendered in the composition of the work with Prussian Blue. Prussian blue is a dark blue dye made by ferrous ferrocyanide salts oxidation. The job was done in a smooth fashion. The texture and make-up of the work was overall incredible and very clean and elegant. I choose this work mainly because of the beauty and beauty of Katsushika Hokusai representing the active volcano of Japan Mt. Fuji. The way the blue changes and the colours are fluid and clean in general. I enjoy optimistic room overall and it also makes you concentrate on the picture of the mountain, the trees and clouds around.
