|Harlequin with a mirror (1923)|
This one that you see, with a black hat, after looking at himself, asked the mirror:
"Magic mirror, tell me a minute, from this gallery who is the most beautiful?
In an instant, the wise mirror replied: "Well I have to tell you that even if you are not ugly, there are those more handsome than you in this museum".
The poor harlequin, upon hearing this told Picasso: "Paint me another mirror".
