About Head of a Woman (Olga Picasso)

Picasso painted ‘Head Of a Woman’ in 1930-31. His painting of his then partner, Olga Khokhlova, is depicted in an abstract and distorted style. Picasso’s painting technique during this time period had been greatly influenced by Cézanne. Furthermore, he incorporated classical art into his canvas to create a beautiful masterpiece.

‘Head Of A Woman (Olga Picasso)’ is an iconic artwork of Pablo Picasso that outlines the turbulent relationship between the two. Despite its summary and otherwise chaotic style, the painting conveys intense emotion and speaks volumes of the love they shared before their eventual breakup in 1935.

Other works by Pablo Picasso include ‘Guitar, Sheet Music, Glass’ from 1912. This cubist piece features some of Picasso’s most recognizable elements from his classic use of lines to tone to representation of movement; his artwork has stood the test of time which remains as inspiring today as it was back when it was created over a century ago. The synthesis of classic and modern art is undeniably intriguing and dynamic; no one can deny the talent behind this timeless art.
