From Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart:
This painting, on the reverse of which the artist painted his 'Mother and Child' three years later, is one of the major works of the Blue Period. In this phase, Picasso heightened the mood of elegy in his paintings by employing an almost monochrome blue colour scheme. Thematically speaking, this work is a successor to the images of sick people and convicts Picasso painted in 1901 at the St. Lazare prison for women in Paris. The profound state of depression plaguing the lonely female figure in the painting done in Barcelona is evident merely in the closed bowl-shape silhouette of her crouching, bowing body.
