Pablo Picasso Art et Solidarité, 1960 is a stunning and creative work that was realized after Picasso had been inspired by his family, Françoise Gilot and their children, Paloma and Claude. They are featured in profile, in a staggered composition and simplistically created with Picasso's signature, fluid lines. A bold, bright blue sea of color enhances the characters as it flows gently down the center of the composition, seemingly forming a small, graceful river that meanders along the curves and humps of their noses and lips. According to Rodrigo, "[the drawing] was produced using as its subject, a lithograph in colour that Picasso had done of Françoise Gilot and their children…and which he provided for use in the poster for the children's campaign" (242).
Created between 1960, this color lithograph is hand-signed by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) in pencil in the lower right corner and is also signed in black in the stone 'Picasso | 4.10.60' in the lower right corner.
