One of the prominent paintings from Pablo Picasso’s late period is Seated Man (Self-Portrait) which was completed in 1965. The painting portrays Picasso sitting on a chair and looking up towards the viewer. Notably, Picasso applies an abstract and child-like rendering style with bold lines to create this self-portrait.
Picasso’s self-portraits were a constant motif in his paintings throughout his career. The iconic almond eyes that are often associated with his work are present in his self-portrait from 1907. Additionally, it was during his Blue Period that he painted one of the best-known self-portraits “The Old Guitarist” which portrays a melancholic figure playing an instrument in monochromatic blue hues.
Pablo Picasso was one of the most prolific artists who ever lived, creating over fifty thousand works during his lifetime. He continued to paint masterpieces up until hours before he passed away at ninety-one years old. His inspirational work ethic, along with his artistic movements like Cubism and Surrealism, has secured him as one of the most memorable painters in modern history.
