Discussing abstract art

I was just discussing abstract art with a fellow blogger. I liked the person’s art because it was a self portrait but done in a very loose style.

I said I thought it will give them freedom of thought. I think of Picasso. He went from realism to abstraction, he had all the knowledge of both in his fingertips…

I don’t know if this makes sense but I’ve selected a few Picasso images to try and show what I mean. I’m not sure I understand Picasso but I do think it’s something to consider. When I was younger I was dismissive of his art , then I learned about Guernica, a village in Spain that was bombed and that Picasso memorialised in his painting of the same name.
