Woman in an Armchair

Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso - Woman in an Armchair
Early in 1910 Picasso did several drawings and paintings of sitting woman and standing female nudes. One of them is the Woman in an Armchair in the collections of the National Gallery in Prague and the Female Nude at the Tate Gallery in London. These paintings are crucial for the development of Picasso's views on art - they stand for a significant move to the abstract form of expression. Moreover, the twisted body and position of the hands in the picture bespeak Picasso's interest in the work of El Greco. Vincenc Kramář bought the painting in 1911 from Ambroise Vollard in Paris.
