Pablo Picasso Peintre et Femme Cuillant des Fleurs (Painter and Woman Picking Flowers), 1970 showcases a beautifully crisp work of art that Picasso imaginatively creates. Simple and clean lines contouring the bodies of the two figures immediately grasp our attention. Picasso’s apt for detail is really shown in this work where each of the faces are not lost by the abstract quality. The painter on the left is mesmerized by the beauty of his muse directly posing nude in front of him. His severely emphasized hand holds up a paintbrush as if guiding the audience where to look. As our eyes wander over to the elaborately drawn woman where her facial features depict a Picasso-esque face—strong nose, slightly parted lips, and beautiful almond eyes. She poses in such intricate manners as if she was once a dancer or acrobat. There are tiny flower petals laid and strewn around her hand. She is seen reaching perpendicular to the ground to pick these flowers. You can sense that her movements are graceful and nimble even as her bodily form beautifully contorts.
