A fine-art reproduction of Picasso's "La Source" (1921). After World War I, many artists sought comfort in regularity, rejecting the extreme avant-garde of the years leading up to 1918 and taking their inspiration from traditional art instead. During this time, France called for a retour l'ordre (return to order), Italy craved a ritorno al mestiere (return to craft), and Germany championed Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity). With its echoes of Classicism, this work exemplifies Picasso's own return to order.
