Similar to how the early concept of the chiasm which Merleau-Ponty explored in Cézanne’s Doubt was resolved more fully by the time of writing The Visible and the Invisible, Crowther’s early physical and perceptual interest in Merleau-Ponty’s concept of “Flesh” - which Crother (2012, 103) argues is the central tenet of Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology – and which he began to explore in Phenomenology of the Visual Arts (even the frame) is drawn to a less perceptual and more philosophical conclusion in The Phenomenology of Modern Art: Exploding Deleuze, Illuminating Style (2012).
An artist stands in the studio before a blank canvas on an easel, with a palette of colors in hand. Not knowing which to choose from, the artist looks over the variety of shades thinking about the different possibilities, willing to create something extraordinary. With an open mind, the artist ponders the idea of creating something entirely original that goes against the artistic styles practiced before. All on his own Pablo Picasso created a different style of art, and practiced painting things his own way. He believed in redefining and reinventing past techniques in order to make them more original; no matter what the preconceived notion society had at the time of what style
The oil on canvas landscape painting does not reveal the name of the painter, but instead it leaves the observer with several explicit and implicit clues which may lead the viewer a step closer to its creator and its reason for existing.

The mundane setting of the painting was created purposefully to give the viewer a sense of calm. By painting a somewhat familiar scene to those that may have viewed it during this time period, the artist was able to allow the viewer to interject themselves directly into the painting. The nature of the geese as well as the maiden in the photo make it appear as if they were candidly captured with a camera in the middle of their daily routine. Unlike the Renaissance or other art periods that preceded Impressionism, the goal of the painting was not to convey any ideas, political beliefs, or promote one’s nationalism. The goal in this essence was to create a painting that captured a ‘scene’, which was done eloquently enough to allow the viewer to ‘transplant’ themselves directly into the scene if desired. The prowess of the painter was not meant to be evident in the painting. In fact, it is the mundane nature of the painting that is designed to make the viewer refrain from drawing any critical analysis of its curator.
Pablo Picasso’s way of drawing can be seen as very different and rather similar at the same time compared to Vincent Van Gogh’s method. Drawing allowed van Gogh to capture light and images more quickly than with painting and

The Large Bathers, 1898-1905 is the largest of Paul Cezanne's pictures and has been cited as an example of his ideal of composition and his restoration of classic monumentality after its lapse during the nineteenth century. Cézanne’s great achievement forced the young Picasso, Matisse, and many other artists to contend with the implications of Cézanne’s art. This essay will discuss how both Matisse’s Bonheur de Vivre (Joy of Life) and Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon are considered as inspired by and breaking free of The Large Bathers.
Although examining art requires a huge knowledge, my intention in this essay is to analyze a piece of art, besides lyrics and the context, I’m going to examine it by following the steps presented by Alain de Botton.
