Weeping Woman, 1937 by Pablo Picasso, Tate Gallery, London.

Picasso did a series of "Weeping Women" where their faces and emotions are broken-up by grief and the cubist style of creating an image out of a series of planes.

Although I think this portrayal is hideous, I wonder did he use the green and yellow to portray jealousy and biliousness? She seems more angry than grieved. Good use of color.

True about the colours. But usually picasso focused on utilising planes of structure as opposed to the distraction of colour, however i agree that this colours create drama which was usually what he wanted to achieve. Such a weirdly minded man but fantastic.
