"Girl with mandolin (Fanny Tellier)"

Pablo Picasso - Oil On Canvas - 100 x 73 cm - 1910

"Girl with a Mandolin (Fanny Tellier)" is an important witness of the era as well as one of the most beautiful, lyrical, and approachable of all Cubist paintings. The fact that Picasso considered the piece incomplete at the time gives us insight into his artistic objectives and technical technique. To begin with, the legibility of this canvas demonstrated conclusively that, despite the fact that Cubist paintings were becoming more abstract in appearance, the artists were still deeply influenced by the material existence and physical appearance of their subjects, at least in the early stages of their works. The work, on the other hand, depicts the tension Picasso had between the desire to give shapes an explicit, volumetric treatment and the need to flatten them down into the picture plane in a very definite way (compare, for example, the almost sculptural treatment of the breasts and the arms with that of the head, which is rendered in terms of two flat planes). Had the painting reached completion, it would have become simultaneously more elaborate, more abstract and more consistent in style..."
