Picasso has long held a complete fascination for me. It is not just the extraordinary breadth, beauty and genius of his work, but also his life and the times.
He lived from 1881-1973, which was such an interesting time in our history. He lived it all so fully, the politics, the creative and intellectual world in which he inhabited – in many ways it was such a promising moment.
I bought this piece years ago from the Louisa Guinness Gallery. It’s made from very pure gold and for me seems to hold all the romance of the man, the artist and the world at a very captivating time.
