Pablo Picasso, seen from behind, seated at a table, painting a bullfight onto a copper plate. Picasso's face is reflected in the metal plate.

"One dull rainy afternoon a few days after the Arles Easter corrida, Picasso sat alone at the dinner table which had often served as a studio accessory, and in three hours painted twenty-seven aquatint copper plates--the entire pageant of a Spanish bullfight. [Villa La Californie, 1957.]" Goodbye Picasso, p. 39.
