Picasso, ‘The Painter II’, 1970


The Painter II, a self-portrait from Picasso’s later years, exemplifies the artist’s commitment to his craft. Executed with meticulous colored crayon strokes in red, yellow, and blue, the composition reveals a rejuvenated spirit and focused dedication. Picasso dedicated well over 500 works to painting artists at work, including himself. Especially in 1970, he repeatedly returned to the theme and created various versions of a painter seen in profile handling his color palette, pencil, or brush.

This is a unique opportunity for anyone to invest in today’s top world-selling artist, Picasso, who hasn’t left the top 3 positions in the art market ranking for a decade. The value of paintings and works on paper from his final years outperforms their market volume. In 2023, Picasso’s works on paper generated over USD 32.5 million: more than many other artists markets all categories combined.
