Secrets of the Artist's Studio at Night

For Mixed Quintet

Uploaded on Jul 17, 2019

This piece was inspired by a photograph of Picasso’s sculptures in his Boisgeloup studio. The photograph was taken by Brassaï. It was a part of the Picasso 1932 exhibition. The sculptures in the photograph showed a woman, a girl a child and a toreador. I also saw paintings that Picasso had made of rain falling in Boisgeloup. I imagined all of the sculptures coming to life at night-time and interacting with each other whilst the rain falls gently. At the end of the piece Picasso returns to the studio to work and the sculptures fall silent and are still once more. All that can be heard is the rain falling.
