This extraordinarily compact, block-like sculpture was conceived in Paris in the winter of 1906-07 and is one of Picasso’s most important early bronzes. The group of works made between the autumn of 1906 and 1909 posed new questions hitherto unknown in European sculpture, putting them on a par with Picasso’s work as a painter and draftsman. Reduced to the essentials, the schematic treatment of the almond-shaped eyes, the smooth surface and the symmetrical features of this piece create the impression of perfect serenity.

“This mask-like object is the sculptural consequence of a radical transition in Picasso’s pictorial and graphic work from a portrait-like conception of the head to a form of expressive stylization” writes Werner Spies. “For the first time, Picasso obtains a sculptural representation in which dependence on received patterns and an interest in autonomous, compositionally abstract formative media counterbalance one another” (Werner Spies, Sculpture by Picasso, London, 1971, pp. 21 & 23).
