“Two Women Running On the Beach, painted in the summer of 1922, is a monument to the new freedoms that swept the world after the first world war. At the time, everywhere from Hollywood to the high street, the stiff conventions of the Victorian age were thrown off. In Picasso’s joyous and powerful painting, in the classical style he was then enjoying, women who resemble Greek mythological maenads run in loose Grecian dresses that hang down to reveal big, round breasts; their hair flows free, they hold hands in pure abandon. It must have been a good summer.” (Jonathan Jones, The Guardian. © 2013 Guardian News and Media Limited)
