Les Demoiselles d'Avignon

"Les Demoiselles d'Avignon" by Picasso depicts 5 female prostitutes from Barcelona in the cubist style. The concept deviates from perspective and fails to give the illusion of 3 dimensional figures. Rather, the women are portrayed as angular, disjointed and savage which is characteristic of the cubist style. It is an extremely large oil on canvas painting on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
