Catalogue Note

“Like a bullfighter aiming his banderillas, Picasso goes straight to the core. Immediately. Again, reference can be made to a challenge to light, which, tangled up in the contours, lets itself be caught in the myriad traps of the Form. Picasso, facing the bull, does not allow himself the slightest hesitation […]. This assuredness makes his every stroke an inimitable signature.”
