About Three Women

The artwork titled “Three Women” is a notable creation by the renowned artist Pablo Picasso, dated 1908. Executed in oil on canvas, it represents a seminal work within the Cubism art movement. The piece measures an impressive 200 by 178 centimeters and portrays a nude genre. “Three Women” currently resides at The Hermitage Museum located in St. Petersburg, Russia, whereas the creation of this masterpiece took place in Paris, France.

The artwork depicts three figures, which are rendered with geometric abstraction, a hallmark of Picasso’s style during his Cubist period. The figures are composed of angular and overlapping planes that fragment the natural shapes of the human bodies, reassembling them into a complex form that challenges traditional modes of representation. The warm palette consists of oranges, reds, and greens, adding vibrancy and depth to the composition. Despite the abstraction, each woman has a distinct facial expression and body posture, conveying a sense of individuality and interaction among them. The overall effect is both a breakdown and a reordering of form and space, resulting in an image that is as much about the act of seeing as it is about the subjects being depicted.
