Don Quixote, by Pablo Ruiz Picasso (1881-1973)
"Don Quixote," one of Picasso's most celebrated works,
has become an iconic representation of the foolish yet
noble hero in Cervantes' classic fable. Although the two
figures are standing still, Picasso's lines are kinetic, and
adeptly express the Quixotic mix of humour, folly, and
dignity within the story's central character.
