Second, under the heading The Creative Process in Chapter 1, page 12-13, Sayre, your textbook author, A World of Art, 8th edition, describes the creative process using preliminary drawings for Pablo Picasso’s Les Desmoiselles d’Avignon. In order for you to understand the nature of creativity, compare the Desmoiselles d”Avignon drawings with the finished work. Consider the historical context in terms of how nature was perceived during the lives of this artist.
Turning to pages 10-20 in Chapter 1, in these pages you find the four roles of an artist Sayre has described. Pick one that you believe pertains to Picasso’s role as an artist. This is your choice. Do not make up your own. I will not interpret your work and will not give credit, so, use the exact same wording Sayre has provided.
Your first sentence states the role of the artist in quotation marks. After you have stated the role of Picasso, why do you think this? Explain your choice. Respond in at least 150 words. Answer all questions to receive credit. Not meeting the minimum requirements results in a zero.
