Together they discussed interesting topics in painting and worked on new projects in cubism. In gratitude for friendship and cooperation, he inspiredly painted his portrait.
The drawing delights with its eccentricity. The portrait is permeated with fuzzy contours. They are “invisible” and foggy, as if pouring into the general background of the picture. Visually visible are the outlines of the human body at translucent intersections of planes. This gives the picture a mystery and originality. The picture is abstract, carries the eternal rhythm of time, the search for truth and the history of past eras. Picasso is depicted in thought, probably reflecting on his work. His gaze is serious, his eyes are deep and clear, the soul radiates light and heat. Perhaps he is considering the plot of his picture, or has already finished work and admires the incomparable creation. During this occupation, Juan Gris found him and decided to show the whole world a unique artistic masterpiece.

Picasso is an “explosion” of avant-garde, fireworks of amazing creativity and the magic of cubic art in painting.
