Observed horizontally, this extremely rare composition illustrates a sprawling landscape occupied by frolicking bathers. The largest of the three discernable bathers is pictured on the left of the piece, her curvaceous form occupying much of the border. The other two stand on opposite sides of each other, straddling the central axis, with their arms widespread embracing the beautiful day. As a whole, the scene is whimsical and expresses the simple joy of spending an afternoon in nature. Most strikingly, if viewed vertically once more, viewers may recognize that Jacqueline’s right eye is composed of one of the bathers—as if she is an active onlooker of this charming scene. Furthermore, her eyebrows are the ferns that surround the cheerful bathers and her hat, the most leftward woman (when flipped horizontally) who enthralls viewers with her curves. In Head of a Woman with a Hat/Landscape with Bathers, Picasso encourages viewers to contemplate the intricate nuances that form the ambiguous image and engage with the deeply meaningful piece. A composition of unmatched technique and superb execution, Galerie Michael is honored to present Head of a Woman with a Hat/Landscape with Bathers to collectors worldwide.
