"Gertrude Stein" 1905-06 oil on canvas by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) at @metmuseum the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Written near the painting: Bequest of Gertrude Stein, 1946. The famous writer and expatriate Gertrud Stein was among the first Americans to respond enthusiastically to European avant-garde art. She held weekly salons in her Paris apartment populated by European and American artists and writers. For Picasso, Stein's early patronage and friendship were critical to his success. He painted this portrait of her between 1905 and 1906 at the end of his so-called "Rose Period." He reduces her body to simple masses—a foreshadowing of his adoption of Cubism—and portrays her face like a mask with heavy lidded eyes, reflecting his recent encounter with Iberian sculpture. #picasso #pablopicasso #gertrudestein #roseperiod #themet #themetropolitanmuseumofart #oilpainting #oiloncanvas #picassoweek

"Fairground Stall" 1900 oil on canvas by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) at @metmuseum the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Written near the painting: The "parade" was such a fixture of French culture and art that it is perhaps not surprising that the young Picasso took up the theme of upon his first visit to Paris in 1900, adopting a tried-and-true design. A colorful makeshift stage sets off an Arab dancer in scarlet pantaloons, a proprietor in evening dress, a stout brass player, a white-faced clown, and a burly strong man. The crowd below is more generalized: a rank of dark costumes and caps from which only a few schematic faces emerge, yet evidence enough to spot a blue-clad worker to the left and a top-hatted bourgeois to the right. The presence of a smiling woman facing us from the lower right corner betrays a lingering naturalism. #picasso #pablopicasso #themetropolitanmuseumofart #themet #oilpainting #oiloncanvas #fairgroundstall #picassoweek

"Bust of a Man" 1908 oil on canvas by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) at @metmuseum the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Written near the painting: In his early experiments with Cubism, Picasso incorporated non-Western pictorial elements into his work, looking in particular at Iberian and African sculpture, which he saw on his frequent visits to Paris's ethnographic museum, the Musée d'Ethnographie du Trocadéro. In "Bust of a Man," Picasso uses a deep orange, rust, and brown color palette common to African wood masks. The simplified yet haunting forms of the figure's face, with its long nose and large lozenge-shaped eyes and mouth, recall masks from the San culture in present-day northwestern Liberia. #picasso #pablopicasso #themet #themetropolitanmuseumofart #cubism #oilpainting #oiloncanvas #bustofaman #africanmask #picassoweek

"Woman Ironing" 1904 oil on canvas by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) at @guggenheim the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. From the Guggenheim Museum website: Perhaps no artist depicted the plight of the underclasses with greater poignancy than Picasso, who focused almost exclusively on the disenfranchised during his Blue Period (1901–04), known for its melancholy palette of predominantly blue tones and its gloomy themes. Living in relative poverty as a young, unknown artist during his early years in Paris, Picasso no doubt empathized with the laborers and beggars around him and often portrayed them with great sensitivity and pathos. "Woman Ironing," painted at the end of the Blue Period in a lighter but still bleak color scheme of whites and grays, is Picasso’s quintessential image of travail and fatigue. Although rooted in the social and economic reality of turn-of-the-century Paris, the artist’s expressionistic treatment of his subject—he endowed her with attenuated proportions and angular contours—reveals a distinct stylistic debt to the delicate, elongated forms of El Greco. Never simply a chronicler of empirical facts, Picasso here imbued his subject with a poetic, almost spiritual presence, making her a metaphor for the misfortunes of the working poor. #picasso #pablopicasso #womanironing #blueperiod #solomonrguggenheimmuseum #oilpainting #oiloncanvas #picassoweek
