913668--PICASSO--The Old Buffoon, 1963
Homme au Bâton/Le vieux Bouffon 1963 Pablo Picasso
This fascinating rendition of the male figure in astounding form has been presented in Herculean stature with his body leaning towards us in captivating gesture. He is transfixed with an object in the foreground, as Picasso has cleverly altered the size and shape of his forearm to appear larger than the rest of his body. The figure is centered in the background, but clearly encouraging a dialogue and relationship with his audience that is just beyond the limits of the frame. It is a piece that provokes movement and momentum - a work that exemplifies Picasso's venture into the print medium.
