Picasso immerses himself in the bullfights in France
Description  

Colorful unformed souvenir hat, 12.5″ in diameter, circa 1960, depicting three stylized flamenco dancers with the legend: “Souvenir de la CORRIDA” (“Souvenir of the BULLFIGHT”), printed around the outside edge. Signed on the reverse in blue ballpoint, “Picasso.” When curled and stapled, a cone-shaped hat was formed. This type of hats was sold outside the bullring at Nimes, France, by vendors to provide relief from the blaring sun. In very good condition, with staples, holes, and scattered creasing, and some light discoloration surrounding signature, but not affecting the legibility. Wonderful association as the artist was a passionate fan of bullfighting, painting many portraits of the sport throughout his career. RR Auction COA.
