And do not even try to understand anything in this work of the great master. Although no ... try to understand what exactly he wanted to tell us, mere mortals. He probably tried to convey to us the whole gamut of sounds that these musical instruments make. True, you don’t immediately understand what tools are in question. There is a fretboard of a guitar, contours of a violin and double bass, there is a place and a piano. There are also musical strips ... Everything else is many-sided, many-sided, the complete fantasy of Pablo Picasso.
A connoisseur and a fan of the work of this artist will immediately become clear. But those who first encounter his work and especially with this canvas will have to try to understand what exactly the great master had in mind.
Most likely, he really wanted to portray the sound, or rather the sounds of a polyphonic orchestra. That is, what we hear during a classical concert from the stage or during an opera and ballet performance from an orchestra pit. He tried to uncover the unimaginable bustle of sound that comes to us in a slightly distorted version. This is all on the canvas. True, these sounds are exactly those that the author himself imagines, no more ...
In our consciousness, perhaps they are different and more beautiful and harmonious, but the author does not claim to be exceptional in the image of sounds. Rather, it just lets us know that sounds can also be depicted on canvas. Just as time depicted Dali.
Incidentally, there is some rivalry between the two authors.
But the truth is: if Dali portrayed time, then Picasso tried to portray a sound, so that the canvas itself also made a sound. Sometimes, it seems that really thin music pours from this canvas. And it should be noted that both authors succeeded in their innovation - we see the time, we feel the music.
