Catalogue Note

By the turn of the twentieth century the Harlequin had become a ubiquitous figure in popular culture and a favorite subject of Cubist artists. Much like the Harlequins of Pablo Picasso and Juan Gris, the easily-identifiable checkered costume in the present work provides the ideal surface on which the artist can pursue his early experimentation with color and shape.
