NEW YORK – Enthroned in an armchair, the woman featured in Femme dans un fauteuil is Jacqueline Roque, Picasso’s beloved second wife who remained with him until his death in 1973. Picasso’s renderings of Jacqueline, whom he first met in 1952 and married in 1961, constitute the largest group of images of any woman in his life. This painting, dated 1962–63, is a late-career work that refers to Picasso's artistic and personal history while also brilliantly capturing that moment in his life and art.
