Pablo Picasso’s Portrait of Woman in a Hat, 1962, Bloch 1072 is a vibrant and colorful linocut that showcases Picasso’s famous abstracted, reductive, cubist style. With thick lines of black, accents of green and blue and blocks of red, white, yellow, this portrait is full of gorgeous saturated colors that fill the composition with life. This work is truly eye catching and shows off Picasso’s mastery of color and shape. Picasso created portraits of women throughout his career in all the mediums he worked in. He was inspired by the female form and had many muses-turned-lovers throughout his life. This linocut is a stunning example of Picasso’s abstract way of drawing the human figure. Forgoing traditional naturalism with shading and creating three-dimensionality, Picasso uses simple lines and colors to create a flat and colorful interpretation of a woman’s face.
Created in 1962, Pablo Picasso, Portrait of Woman with a Hat, Bloch 1072 is a Linocut on Arches Paper. This work is hand-signed by Pablo Picasso in pencil in the lower right margin. Numbered from the edition of 50.
