Pablo Picasso, 'Portrait de Femme,' 1937

New York | November 2015

Picasso painted this portrait of his great muse Marie-Thérèse Walter late in their relationship and, as Philip Hook, Senior International Specialist, Impressionist & Modern Art, explains, what makes this image so fascinating is that Picasso is looking at her in a new and disenchanted way. This work is a key highlight of The Collection of A. Alfred Taubman: Masterworks auction on 4 November in New York.
