"Melancholy Woman" by Pablo Picasso
Picasso’s “Blue Period” produced many sad paintings but this is the only one with the word “melancholy” in the title. I think Pablo is trying too hard with this piece. Yes, I’m throwing a flag here. Excessive use of blue. Plus, the woman’s expression is more of a snit or a pout – not true melancholy. If you are going to use the “M” word in your title you better bring some serious sadness. Tomorrow: sadder.
