Still Life (Nature Morte) - Art Prints
" Still Life (Nature Morte)" by Pablo Picasso is a popular painting from his still life collection.
Picasso painted several still-life's featuring a candle and a cafeteria on a table-top, executed in his studio on the rue des Grands-Augustin's. Because of the restrictive circumstances of occupied Paris, Picasso made a habit of painting at night or behind heavily shaded windows, and the chromatic severity of many of his pictures from this time conveys the ambiance of these conditions. Like other works from this series, this seemingly simple composition of a traditional genre reflects multi-layered symbolism. As is the case with so much of Picasso’s art, he imbues the most innocent subject matter with an erotic undertone. In the case of Nature morte, the images of the cafeteria and the fruit bowl carry Freudian connotations, acting as symbols of male and female sexuality.
