Picasso and African art.
Influences of African art objects: Comparison with Zaire masks.
Picasso depicts the interior of a brothel, inspired by a Barcelona brothel, located in the Aviny square, which gives its name to the painting. Throughout his life, Picasso was influenced by the early arts, he entered into the continuity of the nude, the draping framing, the still life...
The audacity of the design confronts the Western gaze with the sources of Primitivism. This type of Pende mask was one of four proposed by Jean Laude and then Alfred Barr as the inspiration for the two “African heads” of the Demoiselles d’Avignon. Although it is now proven that none of these four types of masks could have been seen by Picasso in Paris in 1907 (Rubin, 1994: 260-266), asserts here “the echo of the affinities between artistic expressions based on conceptual signs rather than on pictorial conventions directly derived from observation” (idem: 265).
