As Peter Jonathan Bell, Curator of European Paintings and Sculpture at the Cincinnati art museum, points out: "The landscape was absolutely fundamental for Pablo Picasso: the many environments in which he lived and worked were intertwined with his art. Throughout his 75-year career, Pablo Picasso was deeply committed to the tradition of landscape painting that dates back to the Renaissance, constantly reshaping it."

Pablo Picasso used landscape throughout his life to establish himself in new environments and to advance towards new styles of painting and sculpture. Through his representations of the landscape, he continued in his own way the path of the leading artists of previous centuries, from Nicolas Poussin to Paul Cézanne, falling within the European pictorial tradition.
