Photographer Hubertus Hierl was able to photograph Pablo Picasso with his consent during a bullfight in Fréjus (South of France - 7.8.1966). The photographs show Picasso in an environment that was one of his great themes throughout his life: bullfighting.
Werner Spies, Picasso expert and former director of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, writes in the book “Picasso beim Stierkampf” (Picasso at the Bullfight): „The recordings of Hubertus Hierl show expectation, tension and fear … they show what Picasso sees and feels.“
Origin: directly from the artist's collection - the authenticity is guaranteed.
