the blue period

dress-Asos (c) Vienna Wedekind

how do you feel about not knowing what happens next week?
today it frightens me to death

Picasso’s depression over the 1901 suicide of his friend Carlos Casagemas initiated a series of somber yet striking paintings known as The Blue Period.
He was a poor and struggling artist, able to identify with the outcasts or unhappy figures he was painting.
 He was also struggling with the youthful intensity of his own feelings. 
It may have been that blue comforted and shielded him from certain emotions he was not able to handle then, and allowed him to artistically grieve and heal.
