Background

The Rose Period signifies the time when the style of Pablo Picasso's painting used cheerful orangeand pinkcolours in contrast to the cool, somber tones of the previous Blue Period. It lasted from 1904 to 1906.[1]Picasso was happy in his relationship with Fernande Olivierwhom he had met in 1904 and this has been suggested as one of the possible reasons he changed his style of painting. Harlequins, circus performers and clowns appear frequently in the Rose Period and will populate Picasso's paintings at various stages through the rest of his long career. The harlequin, a comedic character usually depicted in checkered patterned clothing, became a personal symbol for Picasso.

The Rose Period has been considered Frenchinfluenced, while the Blue Period more Spanishinfluenced, although both styles emerged while Picasso was living in Paris.

Picasso's highest selling painting, Garçon à la pipe (Boy with a pipe)was painted during the Rose Period.

 

Other significant Rose Period works include:

Woman in a Chemise (Madeleine) (1904–05),

The Actor(1904–1905),

Lady with a Fan (1905),

Two Youths (1905),

Harlequin Family (1905),

Harlequin's Family With an Ape (1905),

La famille de saltimbanques (1905),

Boy with a Dog (1905),

Nude Boy (1906),

Boy Leading a Horse(1906),

The Girl with a Goat (1906).

The Rose Period was followed by Picasso's somewhat lesser known African influenced period, where his cubismtook form.
