This fabulous technique truly unearths the anatomy of the plastic metaphor that Picasso referred to as trompe-l’esprit, that's truly not anything yet a poetic photograph — that's, in response to Garcia Lorca, one “based at the mutual alternate of visual appeal, vacation spot and features between Nature’s varied items and concepts. ”106 It was once with an awesome measure of freedom, resourcefulness and beauty that Picasso utilized the rule of thumb of plastic metaphor to the pasted-paper process, which revolutionized the chances of portray. this is his personal remark: “Aside from rhythm, one of many issues that moves us so much strongly in nature is the adaptation of textures; the feel of house, the feel of an item in that area — a tobacco wrapper, a porcelain vase — and past that the relation of shape, color, and quantity to the query of texture.
