More About Pablo Picasso’s The Old Guitarist
The Old Guitarist was painted during a time when Picasso was going through emotional turmoil and struggling with poverty.
Who would have thought that the painting will be worth $100,000,000, a priceless piece of Cubist art?
However, the painting was much more than a weeping blue guitarist.
The painting took birth when Picasso was saddened by the death of his friend and was sympathetic, especially to the plight of the poor and the outcast.
He had seen poverty from a close angle and this painting came out as a result of his emotions.
The only thing that fills the void around the man physically and symbolically is the guitar. He plays his instrument oblivious of his poverty and blindness.
According to the Symbolist movement, blind characters were believed to have possessed inner vision, and some think that Picasso was trying to portray a wise man.
However, maybe Picasso was trying to depict that art encompasses all!
Be it poverty or depression, art has the power to occupy and pull you out of the darkest of corners.
Maybe that is what this painting is about ultimately.
If you believe that art has the power to save you, this painting is for you.
