This essay looks at both versions of Picasso's November 1948 painting 'La Cuisine', relating the linear graphic style to his wire models for monuments to Apollinaire, to a monument imagined by Apollinaire in his novella 'Le poète assassiné', to Picasso's illustrations for Reverdy's book 'Le Chant des morts'. The semi-abstract, monochrome painting is also presented as a riposte to the official aesthetic of the Communist Party, Socialist Realism, promoted in France by Louis Aragon. From within the party, Picasso thus defended freedom of expression.
