The weeping woman is one of Picasso's most famous pieces of art. He uses shape and colour to create sad emotions. The painting is very abstract because of the weird and wonderful shapes he uses. Colour really shows the deep emotions of the woman. By using the cold blues and clam greens and yellows, he makes the painting sad.
