Pablo Picasso: La famille Soler

La famille Soler: Pablo Picasso

La famille Soler is a 1903 large-scale undertaking by the Spaniard Pablo Picasso during his early ‘blue period’. He balances precise likenesses of Soler and his young family in a forested area that is merely suggested with the almost musical variations of blue.

‘Soler family’ in English, the work was commissioned by Benet Soler, a tailor based in Barcelona. It is the only large work from his Blue Period and was painted from a photograph that still exists today.

Pablo Picasso’s La famille Soler is in the Musée des Beaux Arts in Liège, Belgium.
