The synergy between the artist and model was one of profound complexity, "the more Picasso painted this theme, the more he pushed the artist-model relationship towards its ultimate conclusion: the artist embraces his model, cancelling out the barrier of the canvas and transforming the artist-model relationship into a man-woman relationship. Painting is an act of love, according to Gert Schiff, and John Richardson speaks of 'sex as metaphor for art, and art as a metaphor for sex" (M.-L. Bernadac, 'Picasso 1953-1972: Painting as Model', in Late Picasso (ex. cat.), Tate Gallery, London, 1988, p. 77).
