I just viewed "Picasso and Braque go to the Movies," a documentary by Arne Glimcher about how the Cubist movement was influenced by early cinema.
I had no idea that Picasso and Braque were joined at the hip in their art until the beginning of WWI.
It's like all of their paintings were done in tandem, in pairs.
In quality, and execution, their work was equal. In historical acclaim, Braque was definitely the Jan Brady of the two...
It was a decent documentary - but much of it felt like one of those films a boring eighth grade teacher would show you when she had to grade papers at their desk.
I liked the content of the documentary - I just think that it could have been more cleverly presented.
Been thinking about yesterday's artwork. Today I don't like it. (talking about "The Lady of the Arts.").
