ABC Wednesday - P is for Picasso, Pollock, the Pratts and others

Once again it is time to focus on the letter of the week for ABC Wednesday.

P is for many artists - here are a few of my favourites:

Pablo Picasso - who does not know this amazing artist? Such a creative genius.

2 of my favourites of his work:

Blue Nude

Petite Fleurs

Jackson Pollock - An American, He was an important figure in the abstract expressionist movement.

If you get a chance, watch the movie of his life "Pollock", made in 2000 and starring Ed Harris.

Paul Peel - A Canadian painter, know for his nudes and children.

Christopher and Mary Pratt - This Canadian couple were very involved in the art scene. Check out a video here, where Christopher discusses his influences.

Camille Pissarro - the French-Danish Impressionist painter

And of course - who can have a focus on P without at least mentioning:
Pangnirtung Prints - check out this Inuit printmaking site.

Oh, Bev, I checked out the Inuit printmaking site. So many wonderful Inuit artists, and so many styles. Just wonderful.
A perfect post for the letter P.

Quite a variety of P painter this week. Someone else posted Pollock today also. Since I can't draw stick people, maybe I could do splattering painting.

Always an education when I visit each week.
