Picasso’s Blue Period
Everyone’s heard of this, but did you know the theme of sadness and melancholy seen in this art was caused by the death of Picasso’s friend, Carlos Cassagemas? From left to right: La Soupe (The Soup) (1902-1903); The Tragedy (1903); Woman with Bangs (1902); Le bock (Portrait de Jaime Sabartes), The Glass of Beer (Portrait of the Poet Sabartes) (1902-1903); Femme aux Bras Croisés (Woman with Folded Arms) (1901-1902); Self-Portrait (1901); The Old Guitarist (1903)
Girl Before a Mirror depicts Marie Therese Walter
The Weeping Woman depicts Dora Maar
Can you separate the art from the artist? Is Picasso a brilliant artist? A huge d-bag? A little of both?
