Title: Sunset at horseshoe bend
Year: 2021
Artist: Christopher P. Ames, MD
Artist’s note:
There is something about the desert that makes palpable the passage of time and the seeming unimportance of man in this eternal cycle. We are at once silently baked in the desolation of eroding rock and then embraced by color punctuating the ends of days and nights. Every day the same unstoppable progression of heat to cold in the march of entropy and yet every day rewarded with such vibrant hues along the way for those who pause to see.
Dr. Christopher P. Ames, MD

Title: The Old Guitarist
Year: 1903
Artist: Pablo Picasso
Pablo Picasso made The Old Guitarist while working in Barcelona. In the paintings of his Blue Period (1901-04), the artist restricted himself to a cold, monochromatic blue palette, flattened forms, and emotional, psychological themes of human misery and alienation related to the work of such artists as Edvard Munch and Paul Gauguin. The elongated, angular figure of the blind musician also relates to Picasso’s interest in Spanish art and, in particular, the great 16th-century artist El Greco. The image reflects the twenty-two-year-old Picasso’s personal struggle and sympathy for the plight of the downtrodden; he knew what it was like to be poor, having been nearly penniless during all of 1902.

Title: Les Demoiselles d'Avignon
Year: 1907
Artist: Pablo Picasso
Les Demoiselles d’Avignon marks a radical break from traditional composition and perspective in painting. It depicts five naked women composed of flat, splintered planes whose faces were inspired by Iberian sculpture and African masks. The compressed space they inhabit appears to project forward in jagged shards, while a slice of melon in the still life at the bottom of the composition teeters on an upturned tabletop. Picasso unveiled the monumental painting in his Paris studio after months of revision. The Avignon of the work’s title is a reference to a street in Barcelona famed for its brothels.

Title: Mediterranean landscape
Year: 1953
Artist: Pablo Picasso
Landscape painting is rare in Spanish art. This scarcity can be tied to Spanish history. The Spanish Counter-Reformation of the sixteenth century was staunchly against both classicism and humanism. Strictly interpreted Catholic doctrine viewed the subject of human nature and nature in general as corrupt and indulgent. To contemplate the beauty of nature was to indulge in a hedonistic, pagan, and heretical act.

4. Selection of Dr. Morio Matsumoto

Title: Bottle, Glass, Fork
Year: 1911
Artist: Pablo Picasso
By 1911, Picasso's Cubist paintings began to approach total abstraction. This still life depicts a corked bottle, a wine glass, a folded newspaper, a knife, and a fork on a table. Always wanting to remain connected to the real world, Picasso began inserting fragmentary words and numbers with personal and political meanings. The fe 20 may refer to Café 20, a favorite meeting place for artists. EAN above [P]ARIS may allude to the anarchist newspaper L'Intransigeant.

Title: Blue nude
Year: 1902
Artist: Pablo Picasso
Blue Nude is one of Pablo Picasso's master piece in his early years. It was painted in 1902 and after one of his close friend tragically died, he mourned over it for a long time and was in a depressive mode. It is one of Picasso's paintings during his blue period and has without a doubt proved Picasso's talent on highlighting the deepest emotions while using only one color to effectively express it.
