Picasso discusses a possible animated version of his work.
Rare ALS: "Picasso", 1p, 7½ x5½. No place, no date. In French with English translation. To Joseph Foster. In full: "This is to confirm to you that I am interested in principle in your proposition regarding a cartoon (dessin animé) film. Before getting involved, however, I would like to see a sample of this genre of film, which we have discussed. At the same time, I would like to have a more complete technical explanation on the subject of the making of this film." Joseph Foster (1904-1971) was President of the Foster Grant Company and envisioned a series of Picasso-style cartoons. Picasso created vivid images in a variety of mediums including paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and drawings. With the advancement of animation and technicolor, he was intrigued with the possibility of setting his cubist style to sound and motion. Picasso found cartoon images to be simple, yet bold in design. This belief influenced much of his later work. The creator of over 20,000 works of art, Picasso is widely considered the greatest and most influential artist of the 20th century. Yellowing in lower area at signature from mounting stains on verso. Creased at center. Fine condition. Framed to an overall size of 21x32. Frame exhibits minor surface scratches.
