Please scroll down to the previous post for a continuing discussion of simple (minimalist) art and links to 3 minimalist drawings of Pablo Picasso. The idea of how far a work of art can be simplified, edited or "minimized" and still be compelling, is in itself compelling to me. Next week I will try to find some examples of the opposite and explore what makes complex art succeed too. Don't forget to leave your comments and I will see you again next week!

Useful Link- Minimal drawings of Pablo Picasso

This week I am continuing the discussion about simple or minimal art and what makes it work, or not. Those of you who offered opinions on Adolf Gottfried's work last week, were not terribly impressed. Comments ranged from "boring", "I liked some of it" to "I have a hard time thinking that stuff as "real art". So this week, I am looking at minimal drawings of animals by Pablo Picasso. These drawings are very simple. What do you think? Are they boring? Are they art? Would you enjoy them if they were hanging in your home? Thank you for sharing your opinions!
