THREE MUSICIANS
Three Musicians is the title of two similar collage and oil paintings. They were both completed in 1921 in Fontainebleau near Paris, France, and exemplify the Synthetic Cubist style; the flat planes of color and «intricate puzzle-like composition» echoing the arrangements of cutout paper with which the style originated.

These paintings each colorfully represent three musicians wearing masks in the tradition of the popular Italian theater Commedia dell'arte.

Olga in an Armchair
Olga Khokhlova, a dancer in Sergei Diaghilev’s company Ballets Russes, became Picasso’s principal model soon after they met in 1917. To prepare this portrait of his future wife, he created several drawings; he also worked from a photograph showing Olga in the same dress and pose.

Here, Picasso contrasts the finely detailed and meticulously executed figure with an indeterminate background, accentuated with only a few searching strokes and a gray wash. That Picasso exhibited this work in 1921 suggests that he considered it finished, despite having left portions of the picture unpainted.

When I was a child my mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. If you become a monk, you'll be the pope'. Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.
