Les Belles Endormies

by Mrs Miura

Pablo Picasso, “Jeune Fille Endormie”, 1935

1964 Condor Aguzzoli

“[…] To die, to sleep
No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
The Heart-ache, and the thousand Natural shocks
That Flesh is heir to? ‘Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die to sleep,
To sleep, perchance to Dream; Aye, there’s the rub,
For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil
Must give us pause.[…]”

W. Shakespeare

(The Condor Aguzzoli number 2/2 has lied for years hidden in pieces in a workshop in the provinces before being bought and reassembled)
