Pablo Picasso: Les Demoiselles d’Avignon 1906-1907
Picasso was a 25-year-old Spanish immigrant to France when he painted this iconic work.
On his journey to the finished painting, he wanted to respond to Paul Cezanne’s bathers.
This work integrated his fascination with collections at the ethnographic museums, as well as the lusts and anxieties wrapped up in his own, complex relationship with women.

Mannerism: Elegant Art
Derived from the Italian “maniera”, meaning simply “style”. The sixteenth-century artist and critic Vasari – himself a mannerist – believed that excellence in painting demanded refinement, the richness of invention, and virtuoso technique, criteria that emphasized the artist’s intellect. Seen as bizarre, sometimes acid color, its illogical compression of space, the elongated proportions, and exaggerated anatomy of figures in convoluted, serpentine poses - frequently create a feeling of anxiety for the viewer.
