On the occasion of the “Picasso and Music” exhibition, I discovered that Picasso did not find any obvious links between music and its representation in painting. Very great admirer of his work, whatever his period, I threw myself into this painting to discuss with him the pictorial potential of music in painting. Picasso loves music, his life is full of musical and festive encounters. His work includes numerous drawings, engravings, paintings and sculptures of musicians and musical instruments.
Starting from the table titled “The Three Musicians” exhibited at MOMA in New York, I invite these 3 musicians to leave the room in which Picasso paints himself as a Harlequin (surrounded by Apollinaire as Pierrot and Max Jacob as a monk) and explore the colorful musical world. This painting recounts Picasso's arrival in Paris, his bohemian months. Listening to “Carmen Fantasy” by Pablo de Sarasate, the painting, crossed by a large score, becomes musical.

The work was exhibited at  Autumn Show 2021
