dbo:abstract
  • The Old Guitarist is an oil painting by Pablo Picasso created late 1903 – early 1904. It depicts an old, blind, haggard man with threadbare clothing weakly hunched over his guitar, playing in the streets of Barcelona, Spain. It is currently on display in the Art Institute of Chicago as part of the Helen Birch Bartlett Memorial Collection. 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. Furthermore, El Greco, Picasso’s poor standard of living, and the suicide of a dear friend influenced Picasso’s style at the time which came to be known as his Blue Period. Several x-rays, infrared images and examinations by curators revealed three different figures hidden behind the old guitarist. (en)

  • Picasso rappresenta in questo quadro un vecchio mendicante cieco, su di un marciapiede, intento a suonare una grossa chitarra, che nel quadro occupa molto più spazio di lui e si contrappone nella sua rotondità alla magrezza del vecchio. La chitarra e gli altri strumenti affini, come il mandolino, diventeranno uno dei soggetti più ricorrenti di Picasso. (it)
