Harlequin with Glass                  1905

Portrait of Madame Canals               1905

The Accordionist                     1911

Nude in a Black Chair                1932

 When we think of Picasso we imagine Cubist tours de force like Guernica and Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, where horses have their heads turned around backward and young women pose with two eyes on one side of their faces. But the young Pablo used to plant himself in the Louvre before pure representational masterpieces by Rembrandt and Leonardo and copy them stroke for stroke.
