Stoic and determined, a painter is seen in this linocut hard at work. With a palette in one hand and a frenzied brush in the other, he works tirelessly to create a masterpiece. Utilizing simple shapes and lines to create complex imagery, Picasso's abstract technique takes on a multitude of layers in this work. Shapes overlap and intersect to create various textures, highlights, and shadows in the composition. Using the black against the white paper, the viewer is instantly drawn in to the image as the contrast catches the eye and transports you into the painter’s world.
