“The Private Collector” shows a proud collector couple in front of a painting by Picasso, flanked by a Waske drawing of Leonardo da Vinci picking his nose and a Picasso print. The interior is bourgeois. The couple’s faces are merged with the cubist heads from the Picasso painting. “The collector, with his pair of pupils shrunken to a cyclopean eye, stares stupidly at us, transformed before our eyes into Picasso’s simple-minded bull, his chin expressively crisscrossed with furrows, as if he had a little beard or was drooling, while his wife in a flowered dress, placed slightly behind him and cubed in a dim-witted manner, stands lovingly by his side.” (Alexander Rauch, in: exhibition catalogue, KunstHausWien, 2005)
