Theme and Variation: Picasso #2
On the left is a likeness of Fernande Olivier, Picasso's lover and model during the "pink" period. The second one is a stylized version of her. The third one is a
slightly altered version of Picasso's sculpture "Fernande". When he made this bust of her in 1909, the strain in their relationship was showing.
Revelations in her memoir "Loving Picasso" infuriated the artist. On the right is an abstract version of the same form.
