Example text

Pignon kept his half of the bargain.  Picasso readily acknowledged the merits of Pignon’s work and in particular his success in formulating a new way of seeing the landscape. One day, as Pignon tells it, Picasso came to see him at Sanary, the Pignon’s summer country house. At the time, Pignon was painting pictures of the nearby hills.  There were many who said that Pignon profited from his association with Picasso, since their friendship was widely known. Yet the relationship was more complicated than one of unilateral benefits.

By nominating a specific date, Schiff polarises the two aspects of old age which in fact remained intertwined in Picasso’s work: the political and the personal.  Personal memories and fantasies functioned to supply him with a continual stream of references in his late work, just as they had in the s when allusions to sexual fantasy found their embodiment in the Minotaur and his young mistress MarieThérèse Walter. Neither tendency was new to Picasso’s constellation of imagery, and rather than shifting from one to the other, Picasso continued to draw on both tendencies well into his late work.

You don’t seem to realize what an occasion this is. ’ Secrets of the Studio There were other reasons for his high visibility.  Known in France as a novelist and journalist, Parmelin and her husband the painter Edouard Pignon were both militant Communists whose long friendship developed from , when Picasso invited them to stay with him at Vallauris, then at La Californie and finally at Mougins. They were the right mix: as writer and wife of a painter, Parmelin was well placed to record Picasso’s conversations on art and like him she privileged painting and sculpture over the emerging experimental forms of the s.
