Ser Jacopo: Spongia Picta Picasso Rusticated Acorn with Silver (25) (R2) (C)
Product Number: 002-171-2675
During the late 1960s Pablo Picasso created several variations of a man/musketeer sitting with a pipe. The version I find the most striking (and Giancarlo apparently agreed) also seems to be one of the least commonly referenced; 1968's Seated Man with Pipe. In the painting Pablo distorted perspective, displaying the rim of the pipe's bowl as facing the viewer, and Giancarlo evidently took this as a chance to, rather playfully, make a round-bowled pipe. (Very different, that is to say, from the sharply tapered clays seen in all the other Picasso paintings of this theme and period.)- Rachel DuBose
