Here a sculptor gazes at a bust resembling the plaster heads that Picasso made of Marie-Thérèse Walter, his lover, at the château of Boisgeloup. The bust rests on top of a second sculpture, one of Hercules, complete with furrowed brow and unruly hair—creating a link between Picasso’s own work and that of the ancient world.
