Arty Tuesday – Advertisements by Picasso

I happened across this piece which is an advertisement for the Els Quatre Gats created by Pablo Picasso because he hung out there around the turn of the previous century. I love the idea that created ads to pay his bar tab…of course I have no evidence of that, it’s just the romantic in me.
