Photograph of a painting by Picasso hanging on a wall, a crowd of people in the foreground, seen from behind, looking at the painting.

In 1956, at the first public exhibition of works by Pablo Picasso in Moscow, Communist Party hacks harangue art students who have crowded around a painting.

Title derived from Yankee Nomad, p. 430.
