拍品資料及來源

Picasso's bold, linear rendering on a painted white panel dates from 1930, while a host of influences were at play in his art.  The composition brings together Picasso's most important motifs of this era, rendered in dialogue and in opposition.  On the right of the composition is a head inspired by his young lover Marie-Thérèse, recognizable by the intials "M T" that the artist has incorporated into the outlines of her face. 

In the center of the composition we see  Picasso's limber 'acrobat,' the same figure from his large painting of 1930 that now resides in the Musée Picasso.  This figure, who is often regarded as an alter-ego for the artist, takes on an even more improbable contortion as he is wedged between the aforementioned "MT" and the tangle of sharp lines on the left, in which one can detect the menacing profile of his wife Olga.  It was during this period that Picasso was incorporating the image of Olga into his "bone" pictures, which were inspired by the delicate beauty of skeletons and anatomical drawings, and the present work incorporates the aesthetic of this particular fascination. This linear amalgamation also calls to mind the iron-wire sculptures that Picasso was creating with Julio Gonzalez in the late 1920s.

Picasso painted this picture only two days after completing his large Acrobate, depicting what John Richardson describes as "a contortionist poking his nose up his own bottom."  The painting could be hung either way, as Picasso's positioning of the figure in that work and in the present work seems arbitrary.  Picasso told Françoise Gilot that the viewer "must learn to see the familiar from an unfamiliar point of view."  According to Richardson, "he also liked the idea of manipulating viewers into twisting their heads this way and that, and wondering whether they are dealing with a lie that tells the truth or a truth that appears to lie.  Even when there is not doubt as to which way up a painting should be hung, Picasso took pleasure in giving different answers to anyone rash enough to question him" (J. Richardson, A Life of Picasso, The Triumphant Years, 1917-1932, New York, 2009, p. 391).
