Cigar Smoking Picasso Style
Pablo Picasso, an artist who needs no introduction, was a smoker--he smoked pipes, cigars, and cigarettes--and on occasion the cigar shows up in some of his paintings. In this instance, in a painting entitled Fumeur a l'Épée (Smoker with a Sword, sometimes also known as the Matador), Picasso shows a swordsman, very possibly a Matador, smoking what appears to be a cigar.
As for the painting, I will let it speak for itself.
