Picasso Painting in a Museum: Mother and Child

Education Fun,

My friend was in Europe recently and photographed this painting by Picasso in a museum.

One thing that struck me immediately (perhaps because I am a Geometer :-) are the many different
triangles and tetrahedra forms that Picasso uses in the composition of this painting!!!

Combined with his solid columnesque 'architecture' of the mother and the chair she is sitting in...

This painting feels like a Monumental Mountain...
I guess that is why they call this style of painting "Cubism"...  :-)

Enjoy your viewing...
