$36 or Best Offer
Independent and consulting curator
A mid-century black velvet work of art 32" x 32" in vivid colours.
A classic theme in art, the matador and bullfight was also a life-long obsession of Picasso’s that remained one of the most important themes throughout his career.
The bullfight became a symbol for the most public display of violence, bravery and ability and for Picasso its attraction certainly lay in its powerful contradictions: grace and brutality, entertainment and tragedy, and ultimately, life and death.
