These were never numbered. Note: The imagery in this ceramic reflects Picasso's continued interest in the primal and masculine interactions between men and bulls. The ceramic medium allows for a wonderful three-dimensional effect, as the delicate line work brings movement and life to each character. Positioned against a black background, the bull and picador face off. The outlines of both the picador and the bull are coloured in white. Behind them, small dots make out what is perceived as the audience. Viewers are made aware of the tension between the two figures as the bull readies its horns. . . #fairheadfineart🇬🇧 #Picasso #DrawArtFair #DrawArtFairLondon2019 #DrawArtFairLondon .
We have just acquired a group of letters written by Jean Cocteau to Jacqueline Roque (wife of Pablo Picasso) at his ‘Villa California’ , Cannes. This rather racy one, with a very rude drawing, is not the sort of thing you would have expected him to send to a married woman - not least, Picasso’s wife! It is confirmed authentic by Annie Guedras the French Cocteau expert #jeancocteau #fairheadfineart🇬🇧 #pablopicasso #eroticdrawing #heterosexual
