Comparison of Pablo Picaso/Henri Matisse

Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse were both famous painters of the same Era.Picasso was born the 25th of October,1881 in Malaga,Spain where as Matisse was born on December the 31st in 1869 in Northern France.Later in their early days they both met in Paris.They didn’t really know each other very well but they ended up becoming longlife friends.

Matisse was an expressionist and a fauvist painter.This meant that  he used unrealistic colours. Pablo Picasso was also  an expressionist painter but was most known for his cubist painting.Their similarities for these two paintings is that they both have ladies in them.

Both Picasso and Matisse have similarities in colour and shading,but they also have some differences in their themes.Picasso uses bright colours and at the same time he uses odd dark colours.Matisse uses unnatural colours like for example colours of the rainbow.

Pablo Picasso’s “Weeping Woman” has a clearly delineated painting.It also has a strong and bold out-lines.Henri Matisse’s painting, “Woman with a Hat”,has shapes that are defined by varying colours.It’s also a unrealistic perspective.

Although there are many differences between Woman with a Hat and Weeping Woman,there were some similarities.They use the same sense of colours.And they both painted a portrait of woman.But different theme for each painting.You can find Weeping Woman on this Site,but you can find Woman With a Hat on This Link
