Picasso: Dora Maar, 1937. >>> When others say Picasso just scribbled and painted like a child, I tell them to look at his sketchbooks. He was classically trained and took art beyond that. You have to be willing to risk and experiment and fail constantly to do what he and his contemporaries did.
'Femme nue se coiffant' by Pablo Picasso exhibited by Stephen Ongpin Fine Art. The theme of a woman combing or arranging her hair was one that Picasso began to consider in 1905. His lover Fernande Olivier had long red hair and Picasso became engrossed in watching ...her daily ritual of arranging her coiffure; an allure that soon found its way into his art.
