At a young age, Pablo Picasso expressed an interest in painting. He received training from his father, a professor of drawing. Picasso eventually became a titan of the Cubist art movement. Bonhams upcoming Modern & Contemporary Prints & Multiples auction presents a Pablo Picasso monotype titled Flûtiste et dormeuse XVI. The piece is one of only two Picasso monotypes completed in 1933. The artwork shows a flute player sitting next to a serene sleeping model, who is most likely Picasso’s young lover Marie-Thérèse Walter. The monotype was made by painting on a glass and then transferring the composition to paper by applying pressure.
Also featured is David Hockney’s My Shirt and Trousers. Hockney dabbles in many art mediums, including painting, drawing, printmaking, and watercolor. His works frequently depict swimming pools, landscapes, and portraits of friends. The offered lot is an iPad drawing printed on woven paper. It depicts clothes lying on a beige club chair.
