The Weeping Woman by Pablo Picasso (1937)
Pablo Picasso’s The Weeping Woman is a series depicting the tragedy from one of his most epic paintings — Guernica. The latter is a 1937 painting that showcases one of the most powerful anti-war sentiments in history and is held in the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid. The Weeping Woman draws from those universal feelings to spotlight an image of suffering.
Picasso challenges observers and historians to imagine themselves in this woman’s dark eyes and fragmented expression.
The woman on the right does an excellent job of mimicking the intricacy of the weeping woman’s face, paying homage to this historic treasure.
