The bullfight was to remain a perpetual motif throughout Picasso’s life as he sought to realize his vision of this unique spectacle. As he once commented, “What I would like is to create the corrida as it is… I would like to create it as I see it… I would like to create it all… I would need a canvas as big as the arenas themselves… It would be magnificent” (quoted in Hélène Parmelin, Picasso dit…, Paris, 1966, pp. 49-50). This composition conveys the sense of theater that for Picasso remained the essence of the bullfight.
