Three Women at the Fountain

While visiting Rome in 1917, Pablo Picasso immersed himself in Greco-Roman art, resulting in his Classical Period of artistic production (taking place from 1917–23). This work of art is originally from a series of drawings Picasso made in preparation for his painting Three Women at the Spring. Inspired by the richly adorned fountains and network of springs at the royal park of Fontainebleu, Three Women at the Fountain is a display a group of river goddesses gathered around a fountain. Elements of Classical Art are evident in the composition regarding pose, clothing, and overall physicality of the figures; most deriving from sculptural reliefs of Classical Greek grave stelae.
