I`m sorry, but I can`t look at this painting without seeing Cookie Monster. The two apples on the plate look like his googly eyes, and the lip of the pitcher looks like his mouth. That`s what I love about art; it really makes you think. 13 May

Saw this today in the NSW Art Gallery, Sydney. I see a strong connection with the story of St Lucias (i.e. light), a 3rd century saint who is said to have blinded herself to protect her virgin purity. She is represented often in painting through the ages as holding her plucked-out eyes in a dish. In PP`s painting we have apples, symbol of Eve`s (i.e. women`s) fall, and the apples apparently fallen from the dish above the pitcher, where they stand as eyes to her face. 05 January

28 June Nikolai from Switzerland wrote: 'The painting is certainly impressive, to say the least. But what has always struck me as curious is that none of Picasso's other works from this period are anywhere near as accomplished as this painting. It is a well known fact that at one time it was a common practice in teaching painting, for the master to repaint areas of the student's work. In the case of this painting, I cannot help but wonder how much of it might have actually been painted by Picasso's father.'

On the right, I can see buildings, a staple of modern life.
Warm colours, may indicate heat?
There's a curtain on the left harlequin.
Now we just have to make sense of it.'
