This is one of my favorite paintings by Pablo Picasso. It was created by Picasso in 1903. It depicts an old, depressed man with shabby clothing hunched over his guitar, playing in the streets. With this painting I learned that you don’t need a thousand colors to get your point across. This painting is monochromatic yet very powerful in conveying mood and emotion.
At the time of The Old Guitarist’s creation, Modernism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, and Symbolism had merged and created an overall movement called Expressionism, which greatly influenced Picasso’s style. It’s from Picasso’s ‘Blue Period.’ It is currently on display in the Art Institute of Chicago.
