The famous artist Pablo Picasso created the famous sketch in 1955. This sketch has gained popularity among connoisseurs of his work. In his famous painting, Picasso depicted Don Quixote on a horse, his friend Sancho Panza on a donkey, the sun and four windmills. He works very confidently and courageously, his lines are like black scribbles on a completely white sheet of paper.
Sancho Panza, sitting on his donkey, looks at his tall friend, who is tired, exhausted by the road, looking into the distance. They have a pretty noble posture, a little tired from the long road. The body was most likely depicted several times, there is a helmet on the head, the neck is drawn in one line, a sharp nose, goatee. He has a spear in his right hand, and a shield in his left.
His friend Sancho Panza's body is painted with an indefinite mass, in which a jacket is slightly visible. Picasso paid less attention to him, his main gaze was cast on Don Quixote. The picture is bright, full of movement, emotions, clear lines.
The picture is made in black and white, ink placed on paper speaks of the restless energy of the artist, complete freedom, inner energy. Black strokes made on white paper surprise with a bold, simple and clear tone, made with bold and light lines. Don Quixote and the windmill located between him and his friend are made with bolder lines, emphasizing the importance of the figure.
Sancho Panso and the rest of the figures in the picture are lost in the background of the canvas. Picasso portrayed with dark elements, that which absorbed the mind of the protagonist, transformed from everyday to mystical. A horse, as an independent figure, a windmill, land - all this found an unusual transformation in the hero's thoughts.
