Picasso: The Women Behind the Artist

This article was originally posted on the FAMSF Blog, which provides the latest news and views on exhibitions, programs, collections, and behind-the-scenes happenings at San Francisco's de Young and Legion of Honor museums.

Discover the women, the passion and the heartbreak behind Pablo Picasso’s work presented in Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris currently on view at the de Young. Behind every great artist, there is a muse. For Picasso, his romantic relationships provided inspiration for countless paintings, drawings and sculptures. The exhibition highlights many powerful depictions of Picasso’s lovers Marie-Thérèse Walter and Dora Maar, among others, while touching on every major phase of his expansive career. To learn about the women in Picasso’s life and work, here are their stories from the exhibition’s curator Timothy Anglin Burgard.

Print this post and bring it with you to the exhibition as a handy gallery guide to depictions of Picasso's muses. -> read more
