Picasso and Matisse were born in the same era. Picasso was born in October 25 1881 in spain. Henri Matisse was born in December 31 1869 in France. Picasso and Matisse met in paris and became life long mate . The style Pablo Picasso became famous for was cubism whereas Henri Matisse style Fauvism
Picasso had a funny way of painting, he drew in lots of perspectives. Matisse on the other hand had a way could Fauvism. They incorporate same colors in their paintings. Matisse emerged as a post impressionist and was interested in Cubism too. Picasso emerged as a symbolist influenced by Edvard Munch.
. Do you know how to contrast the two painting the Weeping women and the women with the hat? Well I think he paintings of Picasso has more light and vibrant then Matisse has more darker colours in it. Weeping Women and the Women with the hat were weeping because the War was happening and their family had to fight for their freedom.
Looking at the line of the two different painting, Picasso lines are all over the canvas. Whereas Matisse lines were a bit curvy and a bit dark. The shape of Picasso painting there were a lot a shapes in it.
