This whimsical composition of Pablo Picasso Danseurs et musicien (Dancers and Musician), 1959 comes alive with movement and music through our three subjects: two Dancers, and of course, a Musician. The elusive background blends within the foreground, where we find our dynamic main figures, enveloped by alternating lines and forms. Equipped with a pair of cymbals, the dancing figures are suspended in motion, a pirouette-like pose which accents our Musician on the right who carries a horned instrument creating the music that drives our scene. The elusive background blends within the foreground, where we find our dynamic main figures, enveloped by alternating lines and forms.
