One thought on “Friday Nights at the de Young: Matisse & Picasso – Velocity

  1. Picasso breaks many canons of the artistic tradition with his ferocity and distortion but he is dependent on viewer. He is trying to establish a dialogue with her, though from an offensive, brazen and violent perch. The Dance, on the other hand, is self contained. It is a scene that stands on its own, its own energy, its own joy, its own ecstasy. This is a private revelry whose link with the viewer is tenuous.
