After a period of concentration on the figure, described as Picasso’s embrace of neoclassicism, his stylistic investigations moved to a new interpretation of the principles of synthetic Cubism in the mid-1920s (see fig. 1). During this time, Picasso distanced himself from the dealer Paul Rosenberg who had supported his post-war career and began to show interest in the growing Surrealist movement and the ideas of André Breton. One direction in which Surrealism led Picasso was the transformation of the figure into a collection of shapes and signs, and in Femme assise he transforms the placid space of neoclassicism into a visual dance of planes and facets. The entire composition is determined by the overlapping of curving shapes and rhythmic lines that define the figure in space.

The present work was once in the collection of Justin K. Thannhauser, who was known for handling the finest masterpieces by Picasso, and was one of the 30 works by the artist he would donate to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in 1963. Justin K. Thannhauser was the son of art dealer Heinrich Tannhauser who founded the Moderne Galerie in Munich which became famous for an impressive and versatile exhibition program that featured French Impressionists, Italian Futurists and contemporary German artists. It was the site of the first major Picasso retrospective in Germany in 1913, thus commencing a close relationship between the artist and the dealer family.
