About The Dream (1932)
This Picasso notebook features “The Dream”, a Surrealist painting of Picasso representing a portrait of Marie-Thérèse Walter © Succession Picasso Le Reve (1932).
Le Rêve (French, “The Dream”) is a 1932 oil painting by Pablo Picasso, at that point 50 years of age, depicting his 22-year-old courtesan Marie-Thérèse Walter. It is said to have been painted in one afternoon, on 24 January 1932. It belongs to Picasso’s period of distorted depictions, with its misrepresented frameworks and differentiating hues looking like early Fauvism. The sexual substance of the work of art has been noted over and again, with commentators calling attention to that Picasso painted an erect penis, probably symbolizing his own, in the upturned face of his model.
About Picasso and Marie-Thérèse Walter
Picasso’s clandestine relationship with Marie-Thérèse Walter, while he was hitched to the Russian artist Olga Khokhlova, enlivened a standout amongst the most radical changes to his work. That night of 1927, the 45-year-old father was enchanted by the 17-year-old young lady who he saw walking alone on one of Paris’ streets. He was in a flash captivated by her, and for around the following nine years, she was to be the painter most prominent love and motivation.
Marie-Thérèse (featured on Picasso notebook cover) was, from numerous points of view, the absolute opposite of Olga, and that spoke to him colossally. Where Olga was black-haired and experienced physical sicknesses and depression that required hospitalization, Marie-Thérèse had light shading and had young vitality. From 1932, when these new works were first displayed in Paris, the progressive periods in his work were intensely impacted by his emotional interests.
