Girl Before a Mirror

This painting "Girl Before a Mirror" was done by Pablo Picasso in the year of 1932. The media used is oil on canvas. This girl was his latest love whom he had met in 1927. Marie Therese is painted contemplating her image in a full length mirror. The colors used are vivid and notice how Picasso chose darker colors for her reflection. It is said that his intentions were to portray her dark side or Freudian unconscious.
