Picasso and Matisse Comparison

In their time span Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse were very good painters and friends. Pablo Picasso was born on october 25th 1881 in Malaga Spain. On the other hand Henri Matisse was born on December 31st 1869 in Le Cateau-Cambr’esis, Nord. In this piece of writing I will be comparing and contrasting two paintings. The Weeping women and women with a hat.

In Henri Matisse’s painting (women with a hat) he has tried to used a new style of art called fauvism. New then but now a days it has been used a lot! In Pablo Picasso’s art work it evokes sadness with his wife crying during the war. Not much people liked it at the time but now it is much famous!

In both of the paintings the artists have used dark outlines and bright backgrounds.The bright colour yellow shades in the background of Pablo Picasso’s weeping woman with a brown coloured nose. Also green comes onto the canvas overrunning her body with a orange hat. Now to Henri Matisse’s lady with a hat. In his painting he has introduced mostly dark outlines on the lady. The background is an expression with a lot of different colours on the wall. Such as green,white, light pink and so on. So what I’m saying is that they are colourful.

Two different perspectives or angles were used in Picasso’s painting as in Henri Matisse’s it is based on one with the body of the woman. As I said earlier this is called cubism. Most of Picasso’s lines are straight and pointy (not detailed at all). In Henri Matisse’s painting it is more realistic and detailed. This is a new type of art called fauvism.

The next Benji Marshall

"The next Benji Marshall they say!" Yes Shaun Johnson has been a mean stepper and has a good whack on him like Kiwis Captain Benji Marshall. And yes both of them are Kiwis. Last year Warriors standoff Shaun Johnson was nominated for rookie of the year award. By purchasing a pack of this years NRL select cards you could get a card called Shaun Johnson rookie standout. And they can also score and make something out of nothing!

Vodafone Warriors vs Brisbane Broncos

30-20 was the final score as the second placed Broncos took on the 12th placed Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland New Zealand. 19,000 tickets were pre sold before the game. That means that with a big crowd, this would be a GREAT game!

"RRRRRRRR" The Whistle blew to signal the beginning of the game. Three minutes had passed and already the Warriors crossed foe their first four pointer, scored by rookie Ben Henry. The Kick peeled over the post making the score 6-0 In favour of the Warriors. Then By the 20 minute mark the visitors (the broncos) were in the lead by 10-6. That was two quick tries to Jack Reed and Alex Glenn. I thought that Jack Reeds was a no try.

12-10 the Warriors were back in the lead with a try to Shaun Johnson. It was a very scrappy try. With about 6 minutes until half time the warriors crossed over again through Elijah Taylor making the score 18-10. In the 38th minute Returning star Jacob Lillyman scored his first try of 2012. Going into half-time the Warriors were leading 24-10.

Ben Te'o the new Rabbits Star crossed over the try line in the 48th minute setting up the game for a grand stand finish. Half an hour of nail biting passed before the game was all but sealed. When Leading off loader Feleti Mateo scored with six minutes until full time at this point the score was 30-16. The Dying stages of the game was upon the teams when Sam Thiday of the Brisbane broncos broke the line and scored a consolation try. It was a great game!

Painted in the year 1889 Vincent Van Gough painted a piece of artwork that, to this day is in art galleries over the world. It is called Starry Night. In this painting the artist used flicky brush strokes. With the strokes that he paints with, it looks as if the art is alive!
