Painted in March 1932, this painting presents us with an image of a French mistress, Marie- Therese. The style in which Girl Before a Mirror is painted is called cubism. The whole idea of Cubism is to take an object, break it down into simpler parts and then, help present multiple perspectives by recreating those very parts on a canvas. This painting evokes an image of vanity. The painting at first seems to be quite simple but if one were to look closely, one would find different symbols within different parts of the painting.
It is also a complex variant on the traditional Vanitythe image of a woman confronting her mortality in a mirror, which reflects her as a death's head. On the right, the mirror reflection suggests a supernatural x-ray of the girl's soul, her future, her fate. Her face is darkened, her eyes are round and hollow, and her intensely feminine body is twisted and contorted. She seems older and more anxious. The girl reaches out to the reflection, as if trying to unite her different "selves." The diamond-patterned wallpaper recalls the costume of the Harlequin, the comic character from the commedia dell'arte with whom Picasso often identified himselfhere a silent witness to the girl's psychic and physical transformations.
More than the artwork, it's the artist who tried to bring in a new culture of art. They call him Pablo Piccaso.
