Picasso’s Blue Period (1901–1904) consists of somber paintings rendered in shades of blue and blue-green, only occasionally warmed by other colors. This period’s starting point is uncertain; it may have begun in Spain in the spring of 1901, or in Paris in the second half of the year.[43] Many paintings of gaunt mothers with children date from this period. In his austere use of color and sometimes doleful subject matter—the poor and beggars are frequent subjects—Picasso was influenced by a trip through Spain and by the death of his friend Carlos Casagemas. Starting in autumn of 1901 he painted several posthumous portraits of Casagemas, culminating in the gloomy allegorical painting La Vie (1903),[44] now in the Cleveland Museum of Art.[45]
