Artwork Continued.. Les Demoiselles D’Avignon 1907
Self-Portrait Self Portrait from 1907 by Pablo Picasso was painted around the same time as his famous Les Demoiselles d'Avignon painting. The portrait is mask-like and possibly influenced by African art, which the artist had a fascination with. (cubist art)
The artist was inspired by his visits to the Cirque Médrano in Montmartre. Pablo Picasso used the circus performers to refer to the artist's alienation and outsider image, particularly the image of a modern artist breaking new ground. (from the early/blue period paintings) Family of Saltimbanques
