Steps to abstraction

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Pablo Picasso’s “The Bull” is an interesting example which gives an insight to simplify complex subject into an abstract form. ‘The Bull’ is a series of eleven lithographs created in 1945. It depicts the bull at various stages of abstraction, starting with a fairly realistic depiction and ending with nothing but a few lines. These lithographs depicting different stages of abstraction reveal the importance of understanding the form before making an approach to distort it.
