Question:

Explain the social significance and public reception of Picasso's Demoiselles d'Avignon?

Answer:

The name of this work is derived from a street in Barcelona--famous for its brothels. The figures in the work are prostitutes, which stare boldly out at the viewer. Their nudity, and the crudity with which they were painted, were regarded as shocking in the early 20th century, similar to the reception of Manet's Olympia. In both paintings, viewers are confronted with a returned female gaze, which grants the figures a sense of embodied agency, rather than acting as passive female subjects. In a more modern context, the work has been analyzed as representing primitivism and African masks, which complicates the work considering the power dynamics intrinsic to colonial relations and European artists borrowing from international styles. This work was also considered shocking due to its allusions to STIs--associated with prostitution--which were rampant in 20th century urban areas. This calls into question the relationship between sex and morality, and how artists like Picasso sought to engage with it in visual culture.
