He's back! Jaime Sabartes, the same age as Picasso and who died in 1968, five years before Picasso.

This is the one and the same Jaime Sabartes who was the ethereal, dreamy 'poet' of the 1901 portrait (here), Here he is again, in 1939, in late middle age.

They had been close friends since their early days together in Barcelona and Paris. In 1935, Sabartes had answered a plea from Picasso when the seperation from Olga and other complications had brought Picasso close to despair. Sabartes left Spain to help Picasso through his difficulties, and stayed on as his secretary and companion for the rest of his life.

This is one of many different portraits Picasso did of his friend. He's portrayed here as a ruffed 16th-century Spanish gentleman - the chief courtier to King Pablo like in a kind of medieval court.

Picasso completed the painting at Royan on the Atlantic coast. He and his entourage stayed and established themselves there a few days after the outbreak of war...A more detailed description & text in the book: Life and Works of Picasso
