Pursuing Pablo Picasso
The life and art of the man with many faces
The Rose Period, 1904-1906

After a while Picasso’s paintings changed.  The colors became brighter and the feeling of the art was happier.  Picasso painted circus performers, and often painted them with their animals.  What was the reason for the change?  Pablo Picasso met a girl named Fernande Olivier and they were in love.  As Picasso had more joy in his life, his imagination and art became more cheerful.

 

What about these two paintings seems happy?
