Pablo Picasso | A Life in Pieces

Learn more about the fascinating life of one of the most influential artists of all time, Pablo Picasso, in this edition of Life in Pieces.

A Love Story Beautifully Captured in a Portrait

Today, May 15, as a highlight of its New York Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sale, Christie’s announced in a press release that it is auctioning Picasso’s portrait of lover Dora Maar, Femme assise, robe bleue for a hefty sum. Bidding is estimated to start at $35 million.

The release reports that the portrait, painted on Picasso’s 58th birthday, Oct. 25, 1939, was filled with the “unique character, distortions and tension that mark Picasso’s greatest portraits of Dora; at the same time, there is a tender sensuality present in the organic, curvaceous forms of the face which provides some insight into their relationship.”

Well, artists and lovers of art, now’s your chance to own a masterpiece by one of the greats—that is if you have $35 million to $50 million to spare. In case you need me, I’ll be buying a dozen or so lottery tickets.

    Good time of the day! Today, using the friendly design of this blog, I discovered a lot of hitherto unknown things. We can say that I have significantly lagged behind in this topic in view of its constant development, but nevertheless the blog reminded me of many things and opened new, one might even say, mysterious information. Previously, I often used the information of such blogs, but lately I have reported so much that there is no time even to go to ICQ ... what can I say about blogs ... But thanks to the creators anyway. The blog is very helpful and smart.
