Picasso copy – present for a friend
September 4, 2015

Watching a BBC 4 documentary recently, Picasso: Love, Sex and Art I was reminded of a painting, shown in the programme, that I created for a great friend. I had no idea what to give her for a special birthday but having heard her speak with passion about a painting she had seen at a Picasso exhibition at the Courtauld Institute in London I decided it would be fun to paint her a copy of ‘Harlequin and his Companion’.

The top painting is my copy, the one below, Picasso’s original.

I am pleased to say that she loved her present in spite of it not being the original!




Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973)
The Two Saltimbanques (Harlequin and his Companion) 1901 Oil on canvas
