The Blindman's Meal

This is a piece done by Picasso in 1903, during his blue period. It is done using oil on canvas. It is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art on a 95.3 x94.6 cm canvas. This image shows a blind man having a meal of just bread. Picasso was depressed during his blue period and felt that humanity was suffering, which is depicted in this piece. Picasso purposely made his fingers lanky and his shoulder oddly positioned to convey this feeling.
