MIRÓ’S HOMAGE TO PICASSO

Happy Mother’s Day! 🙂

…Picasso had been an inspiration and mentor to MirĂł. How did the two men meet? Through their mothers and cake.

Both of Spanish descent, MirĂł’s mother and Picasso’s mother were friends. Even though MirĂł greatly admired the older artist, he didn’t seek an introduction until 1920 when MirĂł was 27 and was going to Paris. Before his trip, he went to Picasso’s mother and asked if there was anything she wanted him to take to her son. She said cake.

MirĂł made his way to Paris and delivered the cake to the older and already-successful Picasso. Apparently, Picasso appreciated the gesture because he served as a bit of a mentor to MirĂł, introducing him to art dealers and the art community. They were very different personalities: MirĂł was more reserved and shied away from public life. Picasso was more extroverted and more of a salesman.

However, they shared a brotherhood rooted deeply in Catalonia and Spain. Both were greatly impacted by the general and dictator Francisco Franco, who came to power during the Spanish Civil War.
