Acrobate, 1930


This image has been sourced from the outstanding collection of 1000MUSEUMS

In this painting, The Acrobat, Picasso depicted the human figure with the cube of the frame despite the apparent freedom of movement. The figure is also maintained by the colors, which controls the motion of the body. It seems the body shape is locked within a white form and then pinioned against the implied stasis of the black background. This painting is a good proof of the paradox of movement and rigidity.

This artwork is perfect for those looking to add a touch of excitement and vitality to their space.
