In the last entry I analyzed Velazquez’s Portrait of Góngora to see the underlying forms (and, thus, his meaning) with one example of Picasso’s variation on it to demonstrate his similar understanding of the original. Now, in a reversal, welook at Picasso’s variations more deeply. Can you see in the Velazquez the female breast in the poet’s head or Picasso’s eyes in his variation of the same portrait?.
If you are planning to re-post this portrait by Velazquez, do take a quick look at my short explanation of it first because there is an amazing visual illusion in it that no-one but artists has ever seen before. The first time published today! So be the first.
