THE TOUCH OF GRACE
Pablo Picasso is known for his eccentric work but during his neoclassical period the artist developed a style reminiscent of classicism and used mythological images. Though some of Picasso's neoclassical mother-and-child canvases are not large in themselves, the effect of any one of them seems larger than life.
The women in these paintings resemble antique statues suddenly given life. They are solid and powerful, like ancient goddesses, and are painted in quiet tones of gray and rose. They are all Great Mothers, connected to the earth.
Inspired from Maternity (1909), which was one of the dozen paintings Picasso created we present this collection called “The Touch of Grace”.
