The great artist with many writing styles did not try to write in his works within the established framework of the standard, putting all the details on the shelves.
At each creative stage of the artist, in the period of his formation as a surrealist, there was a Muse who inspired to create new interesting masterpieces.
Being married to ballet dancer Olga Khokhlova, who was eager to be present on all his canvases, he turned to neo-classicism. And the appeal to surrealism happened a little later, when a young blonde Maria Teresa Walter came into his life. Thanks to the relationship with her, the bulk of Pablo’s paintings constituted a legacy of surrealism, and also reflected in geographic cycles. Here is a combination of classic and antique motifs.
In his canvases, the artist produces a figurative dissection of the female body, and he tries to build monsters from its constituent parts. One of such works is the painting “A Girl Throwing a Stone,” written in 1931.
He is like a child, breaking apart a new toy with the goal of seeing “what is inside”, doing research on a new model on the canvas. Fragments of the body are folded, twisted, and disassembled. He plays with him as a constructor, and tries to determine what will happen if the parts are put in a different way. And the result shows that regardless of the change of detail change, sensuality is preserved without the presence of aggression. Looking at the picture, it seems that the girl is molded from clay, so soft and streamlined shape.
Man himself and his body parts become clots of wild, natural principles and natural desires. The artist asks the question “What kind of creature is a man?” Only the embodiment of human essence in natural desires and elements of the body will remain.
