Picasso painting women (II)

When Picasso painted La Suite Vollard, the feminine model was one of the central topics. Here, the painter is shown as a faun, who looks at the woman while she’s sleeping. The black and white watercolor contrast is an echo of the day-night, desire-dream and pair-impair dichotomies. Picasso is in the top of his art. He knows well the sense of a classicism mixed with  etching tradition and  with a medieval bi-plane composition. It projects a kind of profane Annunciation, and keeps the heritage of the bullfight series.  The woman is evolving in a nude undiscovered,  and one more time, full of mystery. The faun, symbol of a wild soul,  is violating her sacred space, and we, as voyeurs, are his accomplices for few moments…
