Like lots of other artists, throughout his whole life Picasso liked painting self-portraits in which his real appearance intertwined with the author’s personal view revealing his progress in life and art. This self-portrait which laid the foundation of the “Blue Period” was created during his second stay in Paris in winter 1901. He returned to Barcelona in January 1902.
Here, Picasso is only twenty but looks much older. His pale face with bright contrasting lips and a thin beard is exhausted by severities of a winter in Paris. The high collar of his buttoned up great-coat further aggravates the feeling of sadness and loneliness emanating from the canvas.
