For me, this is Picasso at his most introspective, reflective, creative phase demonstrating his love for Claude`s mother and the enduring love for Marie-Therese. 1948 was a pivotal year in Picasso`s developement of intaglio in his paintings and ceramics. Perhaps, one of the happiest times in his life, as shown in Claude`s face and body. 02 October

Pablo’s father posed as the doctor at her bedside. The painting was very realistic in style. It won a prize at an exhibit in Madrid. Pablo beat some of the best artists in Spain!'
