French Car Gets A Picasso-Makeover

As a tribute to Pablo Picasso, French car brand Renault has given its small electric car—The Twizzy—a makeover.

The body of the Twizzy has been dressed in a kaleidoscope of colors, with geometric patterns and color combinations resembling the costume of the harlequin in the erstwhile 20th-century artist’s most famous works, such as the portrait of his son entitled ‘Portrait of Paulo dressed as Harlequin’ (1924).

The special-edition electric car was created—by Italian artist Paolo Gonzato—as a homage to Pablo Picasso for the exhibition ‘Picasso. Masterpieces of the National Picasso Museum in Paris’ that’s currently in Milan.
