Picasso painted the background behind the girl with a random patterns of geometric shapes forming unrecognizable imagery. The background was painted similarly as the subject, it’s unspecific as to what shapes and forms are the subject and what forms are the background. However, it is possible to identify the subject as she is painted in lighter tones compared to the background. Picasso allowed the viewer easy identification of the mandolin due to its oval shape and curved lines against the straight lines and geometric forms that accompany the piece.
