A touch of Picasso

I skipped most of the old portraits of wigged men and religious motifs that made up part of the National Gallery of Victoria’s European paintings in the St Kilda branch. Instead, I strode to the section where a couple of Picasso’s works were displayed.

Picasso’s earthenware vase 1950

Spotting his sensuous vase from the 1950s, I circled the earthenware vase to discover it was breathtaking no matter which side I viewed the women framing the object.

Oscar Dominguez’s The Dressmaker was painted once he befriended Picasso. Not difficult to spot Picasso’s influence.
