Pablo Picasso, Woman Ironing, 1904.
Above is a piece called Woman Ironing by Pablo Picasso.
Many of you may have seen it before and can't help but feeling
saddened by the colors and her weakened posture. Picasso
allows one to speak for the woman in this picture, because
she has no say, and we have the ability to translate.
- Implied Movement in the woman's posture
- Implied Direction (Arms)
- Heavy black outline around the woman
- Organic Shapes (Body, Iron)
- Positive Space (Woman)
- Negative Space (Background)
- Values of Grey
- Implied Light on the face, neck, arms and overall torso
