Mother and Child.

Name: Mother and Child.
Artist: Pablo Picasso
Location: The Alex L. Hillman Family Foundation, New York, NY, USA
Year: 1921

Picasso, aged 39, had recently married Olga Kokhlova and was now a father for the first time. His personal life becomes more tranquil and his style changes away from cubism. He paints monumental and classically modelled figures. The summer is spent at the seaside. "The colossal women are calm, but theirs is a calmness that arises not only from their remote, almost expressionless faces, but even more from their noble mass, their generally immobile volumes." (O'Brian)
