"Three Musicians"

Pablo Picasso - Oil On Canvas - 201 x 223 cm - 1921 - (Museum of Modern Art (New York, United States))

Three Musicians is a Synthetic Cubist painting, a perfect example of Pablo Picasso’s work and mastery. The frame has within it three musicians, two of which are dressed as characters from the popular Italian theatre Commedia dell'arte in a box room, resembling their stage. The canvas has a Pierrot, a Harlequin and the third is a monk. The Pierrot, said to represent Guillaume Apollinaire. dressed in a blue and white suit, playing a clarinet
the harlequin, s common stand-in for Picasso, dressed in orange and yellow patterned clothes and the last is a monk, wearing a black robe, it was suggested that this represents Max Jacob, who entered a monastery in 1921. Under Pierrot is a dog, its paws extending from the side of the chair and its tail wagging under the harlequin. The bodies of the figures overlap, perplexing the viewer as there is no way to tell where one body ends and the other begins. The composition is like a jigsaw puzzle, characteristic of Synthetic cubism which experimented with cut-outs, newspaper and paper texture. The perspective changes under each figure, the floor is in a different place, extending more towards the left, making the room look lopsided. The artwork starts making sense when you reconstruct the shapes and space, and find out what each part represents.
