‘Girl Before Mirror’ was created in March 1932, the artwork was painted during Picasso’s cubism period. The painting depicts a woman looking in the mirror, with a familiar mirror-image looking back at her. The woman has a beautiful face with bright colors, and the face in the mirror is darker. When you look closely at the picture, you can find different symbols within part of the painting. One way of interpreting the image is that when a woman is looking at the mirror, she sees herself as an older woman. Discoloration On her face and features to the lines show that the woman is distorted. The other interpretation of this painting is that a woman is self-conscious and can see the defects all inside her, but the rest of the world doesn’t understand.
