Picasso, Pablo (1881 – 1973)

Picasso writes to Man Ray, signing alongside his most famous muse, Dora Maar

A rare signed postcard from Mougins by Pablo Picasso (‘Picasso’) and others, including Dora Maar and Paul Eluard (‘Paul’). The card is addressed to Man Ray in Dora Maar’s handwriting, with an additional message at the top, ‘We are waiting for the two of you’. Post-marked 1957. An extraordinary gathering of signatures.

Dora Maar was famously painted by Picasso multiple times in the 1930s. As his one-time lover, she is very often depicted as anguished and tortured. She was also photographed by Man Ray during the same period.
