Pablo/Mattise Biography

Pablo Piccaso was born on October 25, 1881 in Malaga which is in Spain. He became the best, most influential artist in the 20th century. His style was Cubism. Piccaso was known as a radical in his work. After a long career he died on April 8 1973 in Mougins, France.The work of Piccaso is still famous.

Henry Matisse was born on December 31, 1869 in Le Cateau-Cambreesis, France Picasso and Matisse met in france and became life long mates.

In this writing I am going to compare and contrast these two artists' paintings, "Woman with a Hat" by Matisse and "Weeping Woman" by Picasso.

Although both Picasso’s ‘Weeping Woman’ and Matisse's Woman with a Hat are portraits of women, they have different themes and different style.

Matisse and Picasso use vibrant colors for their paintings. They incorporate the same colors like light and dark. 


If I was to pick out of them two I would have chose Piccaso. The reason I picked Piccaso is because Matisse arts looks sad and has too much colour . I also don’t like his style because his fauvism doen’t even look like favism. But Piccaso is new and great.
