Unpacking Picasso’s Les Demoiselles D’Avignon

What I find interesting about this painting is the faces on the women. I like how the faces are simple and distorted yet it is easily recognizable as a face because of small key features. I also like that the painting kind of looks like a collage,with the colors abruptly changing  and the weird shapes that make up the whole painting.  I think the painting was controversial for its time because the painting is based on a brothel  and the title includes the name of the street where the brothel is located. Also the fact that there are women naked in it, might make it controversial for its time.
