the blind man's meal (pablo picasso, 1903)




Saw this at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York.

A Google search suggests that there is a second painting by Picasso of a blind man, sold privately at Sotheby's New York in 1999. In which a blind man touches a young girl. Anybody seen this?

Has anyone seen the Harlequin by Picasso painted in 1903,it was given as a gift by the late billionaire Ken Thomson who purchased it from a antique dealer on a trip to England. The never before publicly or privately exhibited painting was given to a teenager in the early eighties who he befriended while the young man was picking cherries from the fence of his mansion in Rosedale Ontario Canada. Mr Thomson was the greatest Canadian Collector of Art,but he fell out of love with this particular painting which he had hidden away and so he gave it to someone who loved it,with the promise to keep it hidden and to never sell it for financial gain.
I have had this painting in my possession for almost thirty years with all the documentation from Mr Thomson,at the time he gave me this painting He must have felt differently about donating his artworks,as he has given his complete collection to the Art gallery of Ontario upon his death.
The painting is 27x35 and it is much more detailed then his other Harlequins.The reason I am writing this is to let the world know there is a Harlequin by Picasso the world has never seen and since Mr Thomsons death and his change in thinking about sharing his Art I am considering doing the same thing,yours truly Darren MacDonald Thornhill Ontario Canada.
