Painted the year Pablo Picasso moved from his native Spain to Paris, Woman with a Crow is a portrait of Marguerite Luc, known as Margot. She was the stepdaughter of the owner of Le Lapin Agile (The Nimble Rabbit), a Montmartre café the artist frequented. Set in an indeterminate space, Margot seems removed from everyday life as she lovingly strokes her pet crow. Although she is recognizable, Picasso's expressive distortions of form have depersonalized and generalized her. Her gaunt face, wide, skeletal shoulders hunched over an extended neck; and attenuated limbs—especially her fingers—suggest an affinity with the bird she embraces. This elongation establishes a linear rhythm repeated throughout the composition.
