About Picasso Bull's Head - Mug - RMN Grand Palais

Bull's Head is a found object artwork by Pablo Picasso, created in 1942 from seat and handlebars of a bicycle. It is described as Picasso's most famous discovery, a simple yet "astonishingly complete" metamorphosis. In 1944, catalogued as Bicycle Seat, the sculpture was displayed at the Salon d'Automne in Paris together with another 78 works. Visitors were shocked by Picasso's new works and a demonstration took place, during which Bicycle Seat was one of the pieces removed from the wall. Bull's Head is described by art critic Eric Gibson as unique amongst Picasso's sculptures for its 'transparency' - the constituent found objects are not disguised. He says the sculpture is "a moment of wit and whimsy ...both childlike and highly sophisticated in its simplicity, it stands as an assertion of the transforming power of the human imagination at a time when human values were under siege." The sculpture is in the permanent collection of the Picasso Museum in Paris.

Picasso
Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter and sculptor, who remains one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. He is mostly recognized for the Cubist movement, which he co-founded with Georges Braque. Eventually, his masterpiece Guernica is a pivotal example of this. Firstly, Guernica displays the intense horror of the Spanish civil war and its impact on the city of Guernica. Then, Pablo's exceptional style helped the world understand the horrors of the war. Finally, it also brought Spain into the forefront of the European mind. Through Cubism, Picasso showed the world how two-dimensional art could be seen in a number of ways. The dimensions and angles are an abstraction of all the essential features of a scene with only their base shapes. Picasso's style transpires his free spirit, eccentricity, and a complete disregard for any criticism of his work. In addition, this modern approach to painting far ahead of his time supported Picasso’s indelible impact on the art world to this very day.
