This is a self-portrait done by Pablo Piscasso in 1907. The painting was during Picasso's cubist period which was also the same time he painted the famous Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. The painting displays a design element that is extremely prevalent and makes the image extremely great. Picasso uses asymmetry on the left side of background to lure the audience into a false sense of security and keep everyone off guard. Like in all of his works, he tries to paint something the audience hasn't seen. He does just that.
