This painting was created by Pablo Picasso in 1903. It is called "La Vie" and is an oil on canvas. This painting is a blue color and all of the people in the painting seem to be "blue" or sad. I like this painting because it is different than what I have seen before. The theme of this painting is the human life cycle and it portrays three generations of human existence. It shows young love turning into maternity. I chose this painting because it is from the blue period and the mood of it is pessimism and suffering.
