3 Analytical and Expressive Lines Analytical and Expressive Lines The first of the two paintings that I chose because of what I believe to be its analytical lines and the second of the two paintings I chose because of what I believe to be its expressive lines. The paintings also “spoke” to me, they grabbed my attention. Analytical lines seem to be vertical, horizontal, rational, and organized in ways that make one think strong. In this painting The Old Guitarist, the old man is concentrating on his music. If I understand right, this came about the time of Picasso’s blue period. The man does seem somewhat sad but also strong at the same time.
