Seated Harlequin(sitzender harlekin) – Pablo Picasso Painting - Posters
Picasso's young harlequin sits with the resigned expression of the Man of Sorrows, the dejected representation of Christ before the Crucifixion. This is not coincidence because, as Jean Clair writes, Pierrot, the French clown, "can be seen to embody the myth of the crucified Christ."6 Here, though, is not the place to go any further. I merely want to demonstrate that when an artist's proper source is known, a seemingly simple image like this one becomes more interesting and profound.
