Two Women at a Bar Post #4

Two Women at a Bar. Pablo Picasso 1902 Oil on Canvas

I chose this picture because Picasso was beginning to use blue tonality. He used different shades of blue in the pictures in order to represent melancholy or sadness. The two women at the bar appeared slouched over and even though their faces aren’t seen, their posture and the shading makes it seem as though they are upset. The blue represents darkness as well and the woman hunching over represents the heavy burdens of life.
