The Fruit Dish

Pablo Picasso Spanish

Not on view

In a letter to his dealer Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler, Picasso described this scene as “a still life from the innkeeper Druetrx’s place with the letters Mazagran armagnac café on a round table[,] a fruit dish with some pears, a knife, a glass.” A mazagran (some of the letters of this word appear at upper left) is a type of short-footed cup used specifically for coffee laced with alcohol.
