Pablo Picasso: Three Musicians

Here's one more classic painting courtesy of the On-Line Picasso Project website. In fact, Lorraine Lévy is quoted in the notes to the painting saying that Three Musicians is regarded as the "climax of cubism".

This is a huge work, six and a half feet high. The musicians would be approximately life size, at least to the extent that such a comparison has meaning in a Cubist painting.

One thing to keep in mind: when you open the large versions of the images, the window may not allow you to see the whole picture. But that window is resizeable. Click on the very bottom right of the window, then drag the mouse to make the window as large as desired.
