Picasso’s Blue Period
The Blue Period refers to a period in Picasso’s life in which he painted primarily in shades, tints, and tones of blue. Picasso painted many people suffering: the poor and destitute, the lonely, and those struggling.
Picasso was influenced by the suicide death of his close friend. He fell into a deep depression. At the time, many were uninterested in this style of work. Shortly after this time, Picasso’s work shifted to a more pleasant style and mood called the Rose Period.
