Beautiful Postcards Picasso Illustrated & Distributed Among his Friends


Thanks to Picasso’s innate talent in the field of arts, his letters are now considered beautiful and humorous works of art. We are going to share some of the postcards that Picasso sent to his friends, many of which he personally illustrated, quickly dashing off a note or a picture in a loose, wavy script.

In his constant travels he wrote a great number of letters to his colleagues, in which he shared his inquisitiveness and accompanied them with comical drawings. Among the friends who would receive these sorts of epistolary communications we can find Gertrude Stein, Igor Stravinsky, Georges Braque and Juan Gris.
