Picasso and the Women

12 x 9 Oil on Archival Board  


A woman at MOMA studying "Les Demoiselles d' Avignon". It was originally titled "The Brothel of Avignon" according to research. Picasso painted this large piece in 1907, during his Cubism period, depicting 5 nude prostitutes from a brothel on Avinyo Street in Barcelona. The faces of the women were inspired by Iberian sculpture and African masks. This was an interesting painting to try to capture. I learned a lot about Cubism and the shapes and jagged lines involved.
