Description

The fatal women and embracing couples in Picasso’s art of the early 1900s exhibit striking affinities with the same themes in the prints of Norwegian symbolist Edvard Munch. Munch’s paintings and prints were widely circulated in Paris, shown at exhibitions, and available through dealers and fellow artists. Long hair as a key symbol of the fatal woman’s sexual allure is a recurrent theme in Munch’s art, as evident in this lithograph of 1900.
