Gagosian Gallery in NYC (522 West 21st) opened another Picasso exhibit last night. This time, the public will be able to experience stunning portraits of Marie-Therese Walter, Picasso's blonde, athletic muse & lover. (The exhibition is curated by Picasso biographer John Richardson together with Diana Widmaier Picasso, granddaughter of Marie-Therese and daughter of Maya Picasso.)
The portraits of Marie-Therese are some of my favorite works by Picasso. I had not seen these two beautiful drawings before. They have a wonderful sense of calmness about them.
This show will be up until June 25th, 2011. Gagosian Gallery
