Compare these two paintings?
Pablo Picasso, (The Old Guitarist)
Vincent Van Gogh, (Starry Night)
What do you think about these pictures?
I have to write a 6 page paper on these two on how they are alike and different. I just need some ideas. Any ideas are appreciated, Thanks. :)

The suggestions given by "jgilbert" are good... and If I were doing such a paper I would include those things.
But I think my approach would be centered around the idea that Van Gogh's work was created in a short, intensively productive period [about 6 years] and Picasso was very productive over a long and full lifetime.
While neither was perfect as men or artists... their lives became one with their work [in different ways... In what ways?]]
Picasso had formal training and Van Gogh had much less formal training... how does that translate in their work. [Van Gogh worked for a period of time selling art in a gallery... did that influence his work? and his brother worked in the same gallery.]
lots of good materials out there on both artists:

There have been two types of artist thoughout history; the draftsman (one who draws well) and the painter. These two artists are very good examples of each; Picasso being the one who draws well and VanGogh being the painter. This fact is evident in these two works.Source(s): A Lifetime in Art! http://www.artwanted.com/artist.cfm?ArtID=31019&Su...
