“Lately I’ve had the “need”, if we can call it that, to fill or add to my pictures whatever way I really see in them (in the figurative speech of composition, I’m not thaaat crazy, yet 😛 ), so I took the chance to add the artist, Picasso, on the scene.
This mural is situated in the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona, near the studio where Picasso painted Science and Charity at age 15 (an amaaazing piece of art also and awing to be done by a 15 year older; you can see here in Picasso’s museum). Picasso originally referred to the painting as Le Bordel d’Avignon, as it was inspired by prostitutes working at a brothel located in Carrer d’Avinyó in the El Gotic neighbourhood of Barcelona. For fear of outraging the art world when it was first unveiled, exhibitor Andre Salmon renamed it “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon”. Regardless of this change, on its unveiling the painting caused big outrage.
Art historians have often tried to identify hidden meanings in Les Demoiselles… For instance, some have claimed that the central figure’s face is actually a self-portrait of Picasso himself. I don’t see that at all but hey, we’re all free to see and think what we want, I’m just happy and lucky to have seen the original at MOMA. Breathtaking.”
