Exhibition room 4. The Artist's Condition

Picasso began to take an interest in Rusiñol towards the end of his academic training, at the point when he was evolving from student to artist. Some of the most outstanding expressions of Rusiñol’s oeuvre, such as his stage play The Joy that Passes, with which Picasso was familiar, are concerned with the figure and condition of the artist.

What is more, Rusiñol, along with Ramon Casas, represented the archetype of the successful artist most immediately visible to Picasso during his years in Barcelona, and he portrayed them, individually and together, on several occasions.
