"Self Portrait" by Pablo Picasso
This paining is a self-portrait of Picasso painted during his rose period. The Self Portrait 1907 was completed during the working of Les Demoiselles d'Avignon and is oil on canvas. This period followed his blue period and was known for its more cheerful subject matter. He created this happier theme with more red orange and amber tones instead of indigo shades. The man in the painting does not look as happy as you would think with all the color around him as he is not smiling but I think this painting is less depressing than his previous work.
