Picasso’s interpretation of the human form was just one of the many ways he transformed figures with his manipulative imagination. Biographer John Richardson said that, in the summer of 1924, “The splendor of the meridional sky…inspired Picasso to create his own constellations: ink dots connected by fine pen lines that turn the zodiac into guitars and mandolins and the crotchet-dotted staves of musical scores.” Once again, we are transfixed by Picasso’s Utopia, inspired by this always flawed, but always beautiful world of ours.
