Picasso: Life and Art

APPENDIX:
THE EXHIBITION AT VOLLARD'S
AND ITS CONSEQUENCES
The catalogue of the Picasso exhibition at Vollard's comprises sixty‐ four titles, or headings, without including drawings. One heading—no. 62, Portraits, for example—implies several paintings. Further, the spirit of these headings and titles, reasonably boulevardier, seems to be due to Gustave Coquiot, who organized the show. Now that the inventories of Picasso's studios are complete, and various works of the period have been sold at public auctions, we can supply precise details to the reconstitution of D-B resumed and corrected by Josep Palau i Fabre in Picasso vivent.
1. Portrait de l'artiste: D-B, V, 2.
2. Portrait de Monsieur Iturrino: painted over in 1905 as L'Acrobate à la boule, see above.
3. Portrait de Monsieur Mañach: D-B, V, 4.
4. Toledo: probably—as Palau i Fabre surmises—the pastel D-B, V, 51, linked to the trip to Toledo.
5. Femme nue: Probably the Femme nue assise (D-B, V, 6).
6. Iris: Les Iris jaunes (D-B, V, 25).
8. La Mère: The title which remains, D-B, V, 9.
9. Morphinomane: La Pierreuse la main sur l'épaule (D-B, V, 11).
10. L'Absinthe: Buveuse accoudée (D-B, V, 12).
11. Moulin-Rouge: Au Moulin-Rouge (D-B, V, 13).
12. La Buveuse: Femme assise à la terasse d'un café (D-B, V, 14).
13. La fille du roi d'Egypte: In popular French, this means a gypsy. Which explains the uncomprehending protests of the Catalan critic Pere Coll (cf. Picasso vivent, appendix 11). Perhaps the Jeune Fille à la fleur rouge (D-B, V, 60) is in question; or the Danseuse naine (D-B, IV, 2), which does not correspond to any other title.
14. Le Soir: Since this evidently concerns "the evening of life" (and one hardly sees Picasso in 1901 painting an evening landscape), this might be the Femme aux bijoux (D-B, IV, 4). *
15. Une fille: i.e., a prostitute. The most typical, as she presents herself, is the Nu aux bas bleus (D-B, V, 5).
16. Les Blondes Chevelures: La Ronde des fillettes (D-B, V, 15).
____________________
*
The picture suggested by Palau i Fabre, no. 624 (Z, XXXI, 279) does not seem entirely appropriate. Firstly, it is a nocturnal scene. And secondly, it is not signed. At that time, Picasso signed everything he exhibited: sometimes, with oversized letters.
