Man with a Lollipop

Pablo Picasso Spanish

Not on view

Picasso spent the summer of 1938 in the small hilltop village of Mougins, not far from Cannes on the Côte d'Azur. During his stay he drew and painted a number of works showing men licking ice cream cones or sucking on lollipops. They might be tourists or village youths, such as the young man shown in this drawing. The drawing was a study for the painting Man with a Lollipop (MMA 1999.363.69) in which the sitter has been transformed into an old man.
