About Picasso and GIRL BEFORE MIRROR (Marie-Thérèse Walter)
Pablo Picasso was a Spanish artist and is one of the world’s most famous of the 19th century. Girl Before Mirror was painted during Picasso’s Cubism period in March 1932.
The young girl was named Marie Therese Walter and was painted multiple times during the 1930’s by Picasso. Even with backgrounds that are normally placed to be a backdrop and mainly there to assist the main subject. He includes it within the painting to make it just as intense as the main focal point of the image.
When you look closely at the image, you can interpret many different symbols within different parts of the painting. The woman’s face for one; is painted with a side profile and a full-frontal image. One side shows the daytime where she seems more like a woman, dolled up with her make up done. The other side with the rough charcoal texture portrays her at night. When she takes off the mask of makeup and is more vulnerable as a young lady. Another way of viewing the painting is that she is self-conscious, and she sees all the flaws in herself that the world doesn’t see.
