    Many of Picasso's artistic solutions we see in his canvases were first captured in drawing, which for him was the basis of art.
    Women have been a recurring subject in his oeuvre all throughout his life, and especially so in this neoclassicist period. After discovering and intensely working in a cubist manner, he now comes back to researching and studying the human body in a more realistic and objective form, seizing all the possible poses, shapes, and sizes a female nude can offer as a motif. His paintings and drawings from this period frequently recall the work of Raphael and Ingres.
    Certainly drawing is the thread that holds together Picasso’s titanic work, from his childhood sketches in Malaga and La Coruña to his last creations, including his sketches as an album of his memory, his life summed up in the thread, or in the diverse succession of drawings like stills from a film in the construction of his great compositions like the Demoiselles d’Avignon or Guernica.
