Musketeer And Naked Sitting (Mousquetaire et nu Assis) – Pablo Picasso Painting - Large Art Prints
Painted with gestural, lavishly and passionately applied brushstrokes and an impulsive sense of spontaneity, Mousquetaire et nu assis is among the first of the triumphant, swaggering cavalcade of musketeers and cavaliers that trooped into Pablo Picasso’s art in 1967. A virtuoso image of virility and vitality, this impressively sized painting presents the quintessential figure of the musketeer, who is this time accompanied by a sensuous, seated nude. With her shock of dark hair, hieratic posture, and her large, all-seeing almond shaped eyes, there is no question as to the identity of this woman: she is Jacqueline, the artist’s final, great love, muse and wife, whose presence permeated every female figure in this final chapter of Picasso’s life. Like Titian, Rembrandt, Matisse or de Kooning, in the final years of his life, Picasso had a great flourishing of artistic activity during which he produced an astonishing number of paintings and drawings, driven by an indefatigable will to create. With one eye towards the Old Masters and another towards the Informel, Picasso shows himself still challenging the history of art, carrying out iconoclastic attacks, plundering the past and doing so in a strikingly fresh, gestural way. Steeped in eroticism, a machismo sense of bravado, and pulsating with a vital sense of energy, this painting paved the way for the themes, style and execution that would come to define Picasso’s late, great work.
