Original pencil drawing by Maurizio Cattelan - a study for the Picasso project at MOMA (NYC), 1998, in which Cattelan focused on the artist Pablo Picasso. By using his likeness in effigy, Cattelan elevates Picasso to a position in European Carnivale celebrations most often reserved for world leaders. An actor in a Carnivale-type Picasso mask also greeted visitors to the Museum during the run of the exhibition.
