When we think of Picasso we usually think of blocky portraits, geometric still lifes, and lots of musical instruments. Did you know the famous Cubist also painted landscapes? Today’s selection, “Mediterranean Landscape,” is from 1952 during what the Gagosian Gallery calls  Picasso’s “Mediterranean Years.” Many of Picasso’s most famous works come from his youth, especially the 1920s to 30s. Later in life, after the traumas of WWII, the artist enjoyed international acclaim and resided with members of his family in the south of France.

While Picasso’s paintings from the war years are often gray and somber, “Mediterranean Landscape” demonstrates the change in his work throughout the 1950s. This work uses a much brighter color palette, and the forms are more playful and decorative. While the villa and boats are abstracted and fragmented into geometric forms, they are still easily recognizable. 

Ever prolific, Picasso produced many different types of work during this period. His favorite subjects were bullfights (http://www.art.com/products/p10020929-sa-i808391/pablo-picasso-the-bullfight.htm?rfid=978544), portraits (http://www.art.com/products/p13734760811-sa-i6484326/pablo-picasso-buste-de-femme-jaqueline.htm?rfid=978544), and reimaginings of famous works of art like Las Meninas (http://www.art.com/products/p10843499846-sa-i6104548/pablo-picasso-las-meninas.htm?rfid=978544 based on the original by Diego Velazquez http://www.art.com/products/p12973949-sa-i2216544/diego-velazquez-las-meninas-with-velazquez-self-portrait-or-the-family-of-philip-iv-1656.htm?rfid=978544). 

It’s said Picasso made at least three works of art a day. Peruse some of them in our gallery! http://www.art.com/gallery/id--a16/pablo-picasso-posters.htm?rfid=978544
