Pablo Picasso


Picasso's self-portraits are so important in his work that they deserve their own category. This section of paintings spans his entire career, although for most of the post-Cubist work, his identity in his paintings was symbolized by "The Painter", or the "Minotaur" rather than a literal representation of himself. Picasso's manner of self-depiction changed, of course, to match with his current style of painting, so it is interesting to compare the self-portraits from, for instance, the Blue Period to those done when he was working in a Cubist mode only a few years later.
