Visual Metaphor, “Picasso’s Blue Period” a Photostory by Kristina Walther Lewis

fashion-picasso-blue-period

For thousands of years civilization had no word for the color blue. Studies have found that it is the very last color we notice in nature, and so, it is the very last color to be added to any language. This makes blue particularly enigmatic. Being the single rarest color found in the natural world, blue makes a perfect symbol for those on the fringe, a popular theme in Picasso’s paintings during his Blue Period. It was the color he used at a time when he was far from the legend we think of today, in a style that’s just a shadow of what it would later become. This editorial was inspired by the artist’s most melancholy period.
