In 1912, a new direction in art was born - synthetic cubism, the main representatives of which were Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso. This style is full of colors, it is more cheerful than monochrome cubism. In the abstractions of the artist, the texture of the material appears. A special role in this period was played by the creation of papier-collet - original collages. Representatives of Cubism took paper and pasted pieces of various materials on it: fabric, cardboard paper, newspapers, magazines, wallpaper. A typical example of a synthetic cubism painting is Guitar Pablo Picasso.
In his work, the artist portrayed a guitar. He did not want to convey the true appearance of a musical instrument. Picasso decomposed the work object into separate elements, which are simple geometric shapes. He collected these forms in one picture.
As the background of the canvas, blue paper is used. On it, the artist drew geometric patterns, circles and flowing lines using coal. Pieces of brown wallpaper with a floral pattern, sheets of colored paper and yellowed old newspapers are pasted on top. In addition to coal, Picasso used mascara and chalk to depict patterns.
In the process of creating his painting, Picasso departed from the basic principles of classical cubism, refused the image of three-dimensional models. His work focuses on the picturesque surface of the depicted musical instrument. He wanted the viewer to be mesmerized by the picture, so that people had a desire to touch the canvas, to learn, to check every detail of it by touch.
