Seated Figure

Pablo Picasso Spanish

Not on view

This is one of dozens of drawings that Picasso made on the backs of business cards for the cotton factory owned by the family of his friends Juan and Sebastián Juñer-Vidal. It shows him developing an inscrutable, hieratic pose that he would use several times in paintings made over the next three years.
