Les Demoiselles d Avignon

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon is one of the most famous Cubism paintings of Pablo Picasso. The Spanish painter rejects all known forms of traditional art and uses his individualism. Picasso changed the expectation and offered idealized representations of female beauty, and he used geometric shapes in a contemporary way. ''Les Demoiselles d'Avignon'' took nine months to complete, and it's a tremendous work. The public was able to view the painting first in 1916, at the Salon d'Antin. By the time Pablo Picasso was also profoundly impacted by Paul Gauguin and his art exhibition. The Primitivism of Gauguin's works had a significant influence on ''Les Demoiselles d'Avignon''. The title of the painting has referred to the name of the street in Barcelona, a district is known for prostitution.
