I heard a story recently: A friend of Picasso's came to him and said "Picasso, why do you paint the way you do? Why don't you paint more real? For example, take this picture of my wife. I have been researching Picasso for a few weeks now for a college Art class and i must say that with the invention of the photograph Picasso had to wonder what was the purpose of art in this new age. Undoubtedly in my eyes he turned to the philosophy of Socrates and Plato and discovered, or re-unearthed, these theories of reality and "Form" and then captured his concept of "Form" in his art. Also choosing the color palette that he did concreted these ideas into the minds of the viewer more firmly than a "standard" color palette would.
Picasso's family was middle-class; his father was also a painter who specialized in naturalistic depictions of birds and other game. For most of his life Ruiz was a professor of art at the School of Crafts and a curator of a local museum. Picasso showed a passion and a skill for drawing from an early age. From the age of seven, Picasso received formal artistic training from his father in figure drawing and oil painting. Ruiz was a traditional, academic artist and instructor who believed that proper training required disciplined copying of the masters, and drawing the human body from plaster casts and live models. His son became preoccupied with art to the detriment of his classwork.
