"Casagemas in his Coffin" by Pablo Picasso
This week I would like to show you some paintings from Picasso’s Blue Period that I really like. I’m neither here nor there on this one but it is said to be his first. Picasso’s friend Casagemas commits suicide, sending Pablo into a deep depression. He executes a bunch of paintings in somber blue tones expressing his melancholy. The sad paintings don’t sell causing Pablo to go into a deeper depression. What a start!
