Picasso’s Bread Hands
Robert Doisneau was a french born artist. Best known for his street photography, he shot with Vogue photographers before freelancing on his own. His work was highly influential and is highly sought after by today’s art collectors. With his ability to take the decisive moment to a new level, one of his most renown works, titled Picasso and the Loaves, seen above, was taken in a French cafe in 1952.
In 1993 Steve Martin wrote a play titled Picasso at the Lapin Agile. The play takes place in 1904 at a small bar in Paris called the Lapin Agile where Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso meet as they are both on the verge of amazing ideas. Einstein will soon announce his theory of relativity and Picasso will soon debut with his painting, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. Below is New York commercial photographer, Chris Buck’s homage to all three artists’ Steve Martin, Robert Doisneau and Pablo Picasso, intertwined works of art.
