Today's art inspired fashion post draws on Picasso's blue period, that lasted between 1901 and 1904. Picasso said that the suicide of his friend influenced his paintings and as his depression worsened, he began painting the poor and the outcast, using increasing hues of blue. The paintings from this period became some of Picasso's most popular works, although he suffered financially as well as emotionally during this period.
