I like them.
These are all to me very emotionally powerful. The background there looks straight out of Redon.
During the time my parents were working in a realty office in New Jersey we often spent a lot of time coloring in a conference room. A reproduction of this painting either sat on a shelf or hung on a wall there, but I remember being inwardly flabbergasted and embarrassed that the boy in it was not wearing clothes, and nobody seemed to mind the picture.
This is one of my favorite mother and child drawings. It's all about the gesture in that top hand.
I find the perfectly melancholy that I want in these compositions. So full of love and anxiety.
This is my favorite Picasso piece, and one of my all time favorite paintings. I feel that in many of my own paintings I have unwittingly referenced it and continue to.
