Three Women at the Spring, Fontainebleau, summer 1921

Today is the birth day of Pablo Picasso. Three Women At The Spring was the focus of much of my study in the last quarters of my Art History program. The painting’s formal qualities, its mix of classicism and modernism, its solidity and serenity, its mix of casual naturalness and staged stiffness, its mystery, its finish and unfinish… And those hands! … these things draw me again and again to this spring. Happy birthday Pablo.
