Picasso’s Self Portrait with Cloak, painted in 1901/02, is part of his blue period work. The background is drenched in a muted turquoise blue scrubbed into an olive green. His full, dark brownish black hair and stylishly trimmed beard frame the ghoulishly white face with the high, prominent cheek bones. His long, dark cloak wraps him in mystery. His facial expression is almost haughty, eyes staring forward.

Picasso paints himself as a vampire of the night, completely drained of blood, cold and heartless, with only his red lips revealing a taste for passion.
