"Classicism"  

This painting was created in Dinard, a seaside resort in Brittany on the coast of La Manche near Fontainebleau, where Picasso lived with his wife Olga Khokhlova and their one-and-a-half-year-old son Paul for some time. Two years later that work was reproduced on the curtain for the Le Train Bleu (The Blue Train) ballet. Gertrude Stein called Picasso’s classic period “a period of large women”, when along with realistic portraits of Olga he painted such exaggeratedly corpulent women’s figures.
