Two of Picasso's lovers, Marie-Thérèse Walter and Jacqueline Roque (who became his wife) killed themselves. Marie-Thérèse hanged herself four years after his death. Roque shot herself in 1986, 13 years after Picasso died.[/b]

from Misfortunes of a Mistress – Marie-Thérèse Walter and “Le Reve”, http://artmodel.wordpress.com/


So what’s the big deal about Le Reve anyway? Well, here on Museworthy, the big deal is that the model for the painting was Picasso’s long-suffering mistress Marie-Thérèse Walter. Picasso met the pretty young blond in 1927 at the Galeries Lafayette in Paris. She was 18 years old. Picasso was 45, and still married to his wife Olga Khokhlova. Immediately, Picasso became infatuated, and he and Marie-Thérèse began a secret affair. Soon, she would become arguably Picasso’s most famous muse.

Le Reve, or “The Dream”, is said to have been painted in just one afternoon. With simplistic lines and brash colors, the painting is representative of how Picasso saw Marie-Thérèse; as an object of sex. Not an equal, not a life partner, not a wife, not even as a friend, but a plaything, a source of sexual arousal and gratification for the middle-aged artist. Picasso is hardly subtle about it either. Look closely at Marie-Thérèse’s face in the painting. What do you see there in the split at the top? Looks like a penis, right? Picasso’s penis! Classy touch there, Pablo. Ok, you’re horny for the girl. We get it! And notice that it’s she who’s doing the “dreaming”, apparently of Picasso and his member. Give me a break.

If I may throw in my two cents and offer my humble opinion, I personally don’t find this one of Picasso’s better works. I am a huge fan of Picasso, I’ve made that clear on this blog several times (don’t like the man, love the art). And when you look at the entirety of Picasso’s prolific work, especially his earlier pieces and the Blue Period, his depth, his range, etc, you are reminded, lest you forget, of what the man was truly capable of. In contrast, this painting looks weak. Garish and tacky. It looks like he’s putting one over on us and laughing his ass off. It also mocks and demeans and objectifies his muse, and that’s not cool in my book. But again, just my ever-so-humble opinion. Ok, I’ll shut up now.


:P

don’t like the man, love the art[/b]).
starting today, i choose not to like both the man and the art.  i used to pretend that i like his art (not only because i can never own the real mccoy save for the frameable posters of his line drawings, the banana republic had also now and then explained picasso's works to me so well), but now i dare not even pretend.  art should speak for the man and for humankind.  was he human?  big deal.

Reading John Richardson’s biography of Picasso, I was struck by the fact that Carl Jung labeled Picasso “schizophrenic.”

Art publisher, Christian Zervos, dealing with Picasso in 1932, wrote that “I know the pleasure he gets from seeing someone suffer physically or mentally. For instance, when he is at his chateau, he takes great pleasure in having his Saint Bernard dog attack the cats and watching them agonize as their backbones crack.”… (http://artmodel.wordpress.com/)

But then again, art appreciation has nothing to do with the ultimate value of art, which in the end will most likely contribute nothing to the preservation of the human race--not that this is a desirable goal at all.
