Lot description
Dating from 1954, this playful original drawing by Picasso depicts a faun, a mythological creature that the artist used often-- along with satyrs, centaurs, and the like-- as a kind of alter ego in his works, particularly works addressing the theme of love. The sheet measures 10.05 x 7.48 inches (25.5 x 19 cm), and is framed under Plexiglas with dimensions of 21.7 x 19.3 inches (55 x 49 cm).
