One motif seen in four different ways: the seated woman

Pablo Picasso is represented in the Fondation Beyeler collection by over thirty works. These include ten representations of seated women from his series Femmes assises. It is to them that this volume is dedicated, and in particular to Woman sitting in a Chair (1938), Woman in Green (1944) and the magnificent sheet-steel sculpture Woman with Hat (1961–63). In this last example, we follow Picasso’s path from pen- and-ink drawing to painting and finally to painted sculpture. How did Pablo Picasso proceed from initial idea to finished execution in sheet steel? What particular features can we identify about the way he worked? Seated women by Cézanne, Braque, Léger, Matisse, Dubuffet, and Giacometti are discussed in the context of Picasso’s works. The ‘Seated Woman’ was an important theme for the artists of classical modernism.

ANSICHTEN no. 4 takes an in-depth look at Pablo Picasso’s seated women. Detailed descriptions, technical data, special features, background information, and questions of interpretation all fall within the scope of this booklet.

The ANSICHTEN (‘VIEWS’) series has been created for art lovers and teachers. Packed with insights, the series allows you to explore the works in the Fondation Beyeler in greater depth. 

Each ANSICHTEN volume also contains a section specifically designed for art educators. This part of the book suggests ideas for practical exercises and experiments that can be performed in the museum, in the classroom or at home.

The ANSICHTEN series published by the Fondation Beyeler is an enjoyable and entertaining way of deepening your knowledge of a work of art.
