Background In 1966 the Picasso Museum at the Palacio Aguilar was new, having been established in the Catalan capital in 1963 contrary to the wishes of the Madrid government of Francisco Franco. Most of the works exhibited were from the collection of the artist's lifelong friend Jaume Sabartés, but this painting of the Harlequin had been a gift from the artist to the city of Barcelona. Picasso painted harlequin figures many times in many styles. This touching work is noteworthy for its simple naturalism at a period when the artist was better known for his cubist works. 

Artist Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)
