In the pre-war period, when Pablo Picasso became interested in surrealism, embodying in it his stormy, indescribable fantasy, a color graphic image appeared under the simple name Rooster. The painting was painted in the style of expressionism, drawing attention to the rough graphic image of the poultry with bright colors, showing the extraordinary beauty and at the same time its inherent dullness.
The picture is made in rich, colorful colors, where each part of the rooster is carefully drawn. Having studied the picture in more detail, it is worth paying attention that the artist resorted to another genre, using cubism in certain elements. A rooster stands, opening its beak, in which a long tongue can be seen. Saturated scarlet paint traced details of the head of a rooster and a scallop.
Large strokes of bright contrasting paint highlighted the feathers of a bird covering the entire small body. Sharp spurs stand out on the rooster’s legs, which he proudly displays to the viewer. The background is indicated quite simply and uncomplicated, the artist decided to formalize it with smooth beige stains, which, with their nondescriptness and fadedness, make it possible to further emphasize the beauty of the main image of the vocal bird.
Working on the painting Rooster Pablo Picasso sought to show all the luxury and at the same time the absolute stupidity and aggression inherent in this bird. The artist depicted it without unnecessary details and complex strokes, also without using the play of light and shadow, however, the picture is so eye-catching that it has become one of the most recognizable works of the eminent author.
Pablo Picasso created a series of paintings, the main character of which was the cock itself. These works are attractive for their unobtrusive simplicity and at the same time, bright modern originality, inherent only in the works of Picasso.
