Description
Picasso painted this lyrical composition, one of his most important of the Rose Period (1904–06), in the remote village of Gósol in the Spanish Pyrenees. He based the composition on sketches of his lover, Fernande Olivier, combing her hair and bathing. Also inspired by J. A. D. Ingres’s The Turkish Bath (Musée du Louvre), Picasso placed Fernande in the context of a harem. Thin veils of color suggest the ethereal odor of a perfume or the smoke from an opium pipe.
