"The Old Guitarist," one of Pablo Picasso's most haunting images, reflects the struggling twenty-two-year-old artist's sympathy for the plight of the downtrodden; he knew what it was like to be poor, having been nearly penniless during all of 1902. His works from this time depict the miseries of the destitute, the ill, and the outcasts of society. The bent man clutches a large round guitar, its brown the painting’s only shift in color. This emphasis on the instrument, as well as on the figure’s total absorption in his playing, can be seen as a reflection of Picasso’s belief in the power of art in the face of adversity. See "The Old Guitarist" on view in the Modern Wing.
