About Picasso and SEATED WOMAN (MARIE-THERESE)
Pablo Picasso was a Spanish artist and is one of the world’s most famous of the 19th century. This joyful work was painted at the start of a prolific year, in 1937. This painting has a sense of harlequinade, as strong bright bands of color are arranged so that the dress appears like a costume. The figure may also resemble a queen court card from a deck of playing cards, whose imagery is often designed with stripes and banding creatively reversed on the same plane.
The color combination creates a flatness of the picture surface, but Picasso mitigates this beautifully with the construction of a Cubist sense of spatial depth. This is created by the illusion of the two corners in the tightly receding room behind the figure. As a result, the powerful body of Marie-Therese projects from the picture in sharp relief.
