About the Artwork

Pablo Picasso innovated the course of the 20th century art with his unconventional artworks. Inspired by African and Iberian art, his figures, that attempted to reconcile three-dimensional space with the two-dimensional picture plane, are Cubist, Surrealist, Neoclassical and Expressionist.

“Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it?”

Pablo Picasso

The composition of this figure, deconstructed in cubistic forms, is nevertheless imbued with a timeless monumentality.

About the Artist

The Spanish painter, graphic artist and sculptor Pablo Picasso created a body of work of about 50,000 paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures and ceramics.
