About the Art

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls,” -Picasso. One of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, Picasso was a painter, sculptor, print maker, ceramicist and stage designer. He was the co-creator of cubism, but he changed his style so frequently his life’s work looks like the product of multiple artists. Picasso devoted himself to an artistic production that he superstitiously believed would keep him alive for the majority of his life, contributing significantly to, and paralleling the entire development of, modern art in the 20th century.

Depicted in this abstracted piece are some women in prison. Picasso included Francisco Goya’s name in the title, an artist he was very inspired by. This piece is very reminiscent of Goya’s later “black paintings” which have very dark and somber themes. From Picasso’s 347 series of etchings.
