Picasso and Flamenco Dancer in Paper Mache

Picasso and Flamenco Dancer in Paper Mache [enlarge]

This is the entrance to a small shop at carrer Montcada in El Raval quarter not very far from Picasso Museum, that's the reason why these paper mache figures are sitting out on those chairs taking some fresh air in the most traditional Spanish way. It is a well known fact that Pablo Picasso loved everything related to flamenco, remember he was from Málaga although you don't need to be from Andalusia to love flamenco or not. Here is a good link to some awesome figures in papier mache, to Picasso's biography and why not, to flamenco.

  3. Carlos, your website looks better every time I visit. I've been thinking about going to a two-column format myself.

    It's amazing that you can take hundreds of pictures in one city and not run out of interesting subjects. Your expertise in photography is evident.

  7. Hola Carlos,
    I was in Barcelona in March of this year and went into this Shop after visiting the Picasso museum. The pics we took of the shop did not come out. Thankfully we have 2 lovely masques to remember it by! Thank you for the memories by posting this photo.
