Picasso's The Young Ladies of Avignon and Cézanne's The Large Bathers Istaknut

Pablo Picasso's The Young Ladies of Avignon is usually compared to Paul Cézanne's The Large Bathers. Picasso had been very much inspired by this painting. It helped him to look at objects from varying viewpoints. Painted around the same time but with completely different feels, these paintings are influential and have given the painters their distinguished recognition, particularly those that include nude figures in their work.

Pablo Picasso's The Young Ladies of Avignon can be seen as inspired by breaking free of Paul Cézanne's The Large Bathers and its marked symmetry and the adaptation of the nude forms to the triangular pattern of the trees and river.

The obvious difference between Picasso's painting The Young Ladies of Avignon to Cézanne's The Large Bathers is that his nudes look very aware that we are viewing them, and seem to be looking right back at us, which comes across as suggestive and seductive. Cézanne deconstructed the body quite differently from previous artists, which caused a stir at the time. His nudes seem only aware of each other, almost completely oblivious to the viewer. The abstract females surround a pond as they bath with abstract surroundings. Trees that bend into an arch above them and clouds and the sky pull all focus on the women with their round bodies.
