Larger than life
A couple of people who've been to the studio were suprised at how big the picture is, so this should give you a better idea of the scale:
A Paris gallery once arranged for a famous painting by Picasso to be exhibited. They sent a removals van and five men to collect it from Picasso's studio. The painting had been in many books and catalogues, but the gallery obviously hadn't read the small print as the picture was only about 300mm [one foot] wide. The men took it in turns to carry it I imagine.
You can see more pictures of the studio and the painting on my website, but if you're looking at this after the 14th of April they won't be there [there'll be other pictures though because I up-date the page every week]
