During the early 20th Century, Picasso was working alongside George Braque with inspiration from African sculpture to create a new movement that came to be known as cubism. Picasso is commonly recognised as the pioneer for this movement and is the foundation for his fame. Here in Femme Au Balcon, we see Picasso’s cubist elements blend with portraiture to create this image full of colour and life.
Leaning against the curved railing of the balcony, the model in this print is depicted through a series of shapes and forms of varying colours layered over one another. A typical example of Pablo Picasso’s work, this print demonstrates the artist’s ability to manipulate perspective and create unique views of his subjects.
The Pablo Picasso signature has been taken from the original lithograph.
