  1. Reblogged this on ArtAutographs and commented:
    Very nice examples, where my heart is opening

    • Salut Camille, vraiment dans tout travail de Basquiat il ya beaucoup de détails à découvrir, comme un microcosme, et sont bien connus, car il décrit les objets et il parle avec mots qui sont populaires et qui sont dans la même rue. Il est un art total. Merci de votre visite et de votre commentaire. Bisous.

  2. These are fantastic! Beautiful! I love to see how incredibly untidy Picasso’s handwriting is. My 8 year old daughter writes better 😀

    • It’s just what Picasso wanted. He said that we should get rid of what we had learned, and then recover the spontaneous and fresh way to express, that we had when we was child. But behind that message, there is a reflection on the type of pressure with pencils, with the proportions of anatomy, with space and perspective. The childhood’s drawing is one of the most important keys of the art of this master. Something really revolutionary. Thanks for your visit and especially thank you very much for your comment and trust. ❤

  3. Que colección tan original. Me ha sorprendido bastante la letra de Picasso (creo que ya lo han comentado por ahí arriba), es curioso.
    Y pufff!! cuanto desasosiego transmite Basquiat, es una de esas cosas que te angustian pero no puedes dejar de mirar…
    Muy buena publicación^^

    Cuídate mucho y un beso!

    • …y qué ilusión a estas horas de la noche, poder responder en nuestro idioma, sin tener que traducir.
      Sí, efectivamente Picasso, hacía apología de la expresión ‘infantil’ en buena parte de su obra. Es una clave muy importante. Basquiat como tu aprecias, se expresa de forma caótica pero con elementos familiares o de actualidad. Todo son maneras y formas de cada autor que cotejándolas destacan más por contraste. Esa es en buena parte la misión de este blog. Te agradezco muchísimo tu visita y aún más que hayas hecho un comentario. Sabes que tienes mi admiración. Un beso y muchas gracias. ❤

  4. This is a very interesting post!
