He Picasso, is almost one of us.
His work.
Funeral of the Anarchist Galli. It was finished in 1911.
Just from the title and looking at this painting you can see exactly what its about and what story he is trying to portray.

And finally my last painting is Concert Cafe. He uses charcoal on paper, which gives a very dark and rustic effect. Its very raw has a lot areas to look at. Not a very simple image in understanding what is actually going on and the title isn’t much help. He did this in 1912.
