Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter and sculptor, known to be one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. His style is characterized by his free spirit, eccentric style, and complete disregard for criticism to his work. His modern approach to painting was considered to be far ahead of his time. Picasso was arguably the first artist to have such a profound impact on the art world.
Picasso and Dora Maar
In Portrait of Dora Maar (1937), the artist¡s lover is portrayed with acidic colors and angular forms.Hence, Maar became the rival of Picasso’s blonde mistress, Walter, with whom he had newborn Maya; Picasso would later fondly recall an incident where the two women encountered one other at his studio, demanding that he choose between them, but being urged instead to fight it out, which led to their wrestling on the floor. Picasso often painted beautiful, sad Dora, who suffered because she was sterile, and called her his “private muse.” For him, she was the “woman in tears” in many aspects.
Maar went on to paint minor elements of Guernica (1937) for Picasso and photographed the successive stages of its completion in his workshop on the rue des Grands Augustins, which made Maar better known in the art world. During their love affair, she suffered from his moods, and hated that he took a new lover, Françoise Gilot, in 1943; Picasso sent Dora to his friend, the psychiatrist Jacques Lacan, for psychoanalytic treatment.Maar kept her Picasso paintings for herself until her death in 1997, as souvenirs of their extraordinary affair.
