This portrait was made "for Roby," Picasso's friend and neighbor. Both sensitive and powerful, this line drawing captures a dreaming model in a pensive moment. This is an etching from the original plate drawn by the artist.
Pablo Picasso is arguably the most discussed, exhibited, and influential artist of the 20th century. Together with Georges Braque, he founded the Cubist movement, and largely dominated the trajectory of modern art throughout his long life.
