Studying Picasso's Painting, "La Soupe" & My Art Painting, "Two Workers"


This is Picasso’s painting, La Soupe. It was painted during Picasso’s blue period and is in the collection of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). While I have studied and seen Picasso’s painting several times, it was not considered when I painted, Two Workers. In prior posts I wrote about my glazing of colour complements, orange and blue (hue). I wrote about the compositional structure, a bridge. The workers are confined in a small, compressed area to emphasize their hard work. They cannot stand straight in the picture plane. Picasso also compressed space in his painting. The woman is bent over and cannot stand straight in his picture plane. He also placed a hard edge at the top of the figure to further emphasize the posture and weight on the woman. I considered adding a heavy line at the top of my worker on the right to emphasize the workers’ confinement. I did not do this as my main goal was to emphasize the heat and reflection of the fire.
