(Barcelona, 1871 – Paris, 1925)
In 1902 Picasso and Ramon Pichot, a painter and engraver, held a joint exhibition at Galerie Berthe Weill in Paris. The two artists experienced Parisian bohemianism and decorated Montmartre's Zut cabaret. In 1910 Picasso and Fernande Olivier spent a summer in Cadaqués, staying at the Pichot family house. Pichot’s distinctive height and lankiness are wittily suggested by his stooping posture, scrawny neck, baggy clothing and the relatively large area given to the unpainted background.
