Picasso Pig Print

$75.00

Picasso Pig Print. This 8” x 10” print sits within a 14” x 15 ½” frame. Picasso spent the summer 1906 in the remote Catalonian village of Gósol, from where he maintained a correspondence with his friend, the American writer Gertrude Stein. According to her autobiography of 1933, Stein “was always fond of pigs, and because of this Picasso made and gave her some charming drawings of the prodigal son among the pigs. And one delightful study of pigs all by themselves”. This drawing is almost certainly Picasso’s gift to Stein and was made in preparation for his painting The Swineherd.
