Desiring to present an object of interest in its paintings in its entirety of its possible angles, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) began to combine several types of the same object in the image, capturing different points of view on it. The artist tried to show the things of the real world and people not only as the eye sees them, but also in forms accessible to the mental eye and reason. He began to divide his living and non-living models into fragments resembling geometric figures, tearing them like uneven pieces of paper into uneven pieces, and then spontaneously combining these angular “details” in the order that, in his opinion, more expressed his own the essence of the depicted. The prospect disappeared, the palette tends to monochrome, and although the initial goal of cubism was to more accurately and convincingly than using traditional techniques, reproduce the content and shape of the object, the images in Picasso's paintings sometimes turned into an incomprehensible mixture of various geometric elements.

Painting "Woman sitting in a chair" written in the second phase of the cubic period in the works of the famous Spanish painter. This work was done in the style of the so-called analytical cubism, which he turned to in 1909. The artist turns the image into a fractional pattern of small geometric figures through which a pictorial motif is visible: in the center of the composition is a thin hand with long fingers. In such canvases, the expressiveness of the newly created ornamental form and gradations of color, gravitating to a uniform tone, is of great importance. In this case, gray-blue shades prevail in the colorful gamut of the picture.
