El Blog del museo Picasso de Barcelona

The hashtag #PicassoEdu is born in the meeting of cultural bloggers and communicators

We are accompanied on this occasion by a group of cultural bloggers and communicators to get to know first-hand the Education Service of the @MuseuPicasso and to experiment with the Visual Thinking Strategies #VTS.

This method is based on observation and dialogue in front of the work of art.

EDUCATION SERVICE  @MuseuPicasso

We proposed to a number of cultural bloggers and communicators to actively participate in the visit to the collection of the Museu Picasso with the Education Service of the @MuseuPicasso.

The tour allowed them to discover what is transmitted to each of them by the contemplation of the work of art, in this case focused on 4 works: Science and Charity, The wait (Margot)Rooftops of Barcelona and Las Meninas. For this visit we counted on:  @CultiusCulturals @Guiomar_sp @MargaridaLoran @SocialCultura @ElDadodelArte @KippelBoy @CarmeMix @TinetPuntZero i @VangelisVillar.

 

New hashtag #PicassoEdu

We took advantage of this meeting to launch the new hashtag #PicassoEdu which from now on aims to identify all the activities that are carried out at the @MuseuPicasso and also based around the artist.

 

Science and Charity, 1897

The central figure of this work is a lady reclining on a bed, assisted by a masculine character who could represent a doctor, and by a figure dressed in a nun’s habit who offers her, or takes from her, a cup while holding a child, in a setting which denotes poverty. Painted by Picasso when he was 15 years old, the work follows the artistic conventions of the period and is strongly influenced by the recommendations of his father, also a painter.

Visual Thinking Strategies #VTS

The @MuseuPicasso proposes an educational project based on the importance of observing and dialoguing in front of the work in which the educator acts as the moderator of the debate and provides the participants with the keys to deepen their own knowledge. The learning takes place in a group and by sharing opinions, new and enriching conclusions are reached.

The wait (Margot), 1901

The central character of this work is a female figure produced in primary and bright colours and with thick and loose brushstrokes. The woman, with make-up and dressed up, is leaning on her elbows, with the right-hand at her back, and is looking at the spectators, or maybe even beyond, with a look that is open to diverse interpretations. It is set in the nightlife of Paris which Picasso knew at the beginning of the 20th century.

 

Rooftops of Barcelona, 1903

An urban landscape of the rooftops of the city, a frequent theme during this period in the work of Picasso. What is notable is the first geometricisation of the space, which was not explored by the artist until later on, and the lack of human figures that populate this space, something which, along with the predominance of the blue tones in the work, provides the work with a feeling of solitude and peace.

Las Meninas, 1957

This grisaille is the first work of the series in which Picasso makes a personal interpretation of the work of Velázquez. The same characters appear and it follows the same composition, even though the aesthetics vary, in an approach that takes the artistic language towards Picasso’s terrain.

And for now, that’s the experience. Many thanks to all of you for your collaboration and enthusiasm by participating in this initiative
