Cushion cover / Picasso / Femme à la fleur (1932) / 45 x 45 cm
By 1918 Picasso had befriended fellow artists and the poet Jean Cocteau, leading him to work with Russian ballet. There he met the dancer Olga Koklova, with whom he fell in love and married. She influenced his work during this time, as did many other women throughout his career. At this time he returned to more traditional styles, although he still allowed Cubism to permeate his work.
By the mid-1920s, Picasso had become overly famous. He didn't like the fact that all of his work was revered over and over again just because of its fame. He was frustrated and his marriage strained, leading to a series of divorces, mistresses, and illegitimate children. During this period he began sculpting and after 1927 was heavily influenced by the newly discovered Surrealism. The influence of Surrealism can be seen in one of his best-known paintings, Woman with a Flower.
