The Old Guitarist

The Old Guitarist is an oil painting by Pablo Picasso, done in 1903. It picture an old, haggard playing the guitar on the streets of Spain.This piece is from Picasso's blue period, a time in which the color blue was most prominent in his paintings.I like this piece because of the color scheme, and the way the old man is positioned.His position makes you ask is something troubling him or is he just sick.
