The Energy and Invention of Picasso’s ‘Homme à la pipe’


In the 1960s, Pablo Picasso was gripped by the sense he had ‘less and less time’ and ‘more and more to say’. In this episode of Expert Voices, discover how this feeling inspired the creativity of Picasso’s mature work, and how his desire to paint himself into the European artistic canon saw him incorporate subjects of art historic tradition into profoundly modern works. ‘Homme à la pipe’ is a highlight of our upcoming Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale.
