Femme assise (Sitzende Frau)

Femme assise by Pablo Picasso

Painting Details

20th Century Artist: Pablo Picasso
Title and Year: Femme assise (Sitzende Frau), 1909
Size: 100cm x 80cm
Medium: Oil on Canvas
Collection: Berlin State Museums, Neue Nationalgalerie, Germany
Subject: Women, Nudes


Typically Cubist work where the subject has been fragmented, sliced, and diced until becoming almost unrecognizable. The chair and the figure are starting to merge with the background, but the breasts and lips of the woman remain clear to see. Picasso may have been in the process of deconstructing the sitter, tearing her down to mere building blocks, but he still loved beautiful women, particularly those with no clothes on.
