Pablo Picasso, wearing only shorts, dances in his studio.

"Jacqueline gave up trying to teach Pablo a ballet routine, he seemed too flat-footed--hopeless . . . [but] the moment she sat down, he twirled away in his own routine . . . [and] he stomped and whirled, combination square dancer and dervish. [Villa La Californie, 1957.]" Viva Picasso, p. 145.
