Pablo Picasso, Woman with the Orange Beret and Fur Collar


Picasso’s love affairs were legendary and they fuelled his creativity.
‘I paint the way some people write their autobiography,’ said Pablo Picasso, explaining that his pictures were like the pages of a diary. For an artist with a prodigious sexual appetite, this perhaps reveals why many of his paintings focus on the women in his life.
Femme au béret orange et au col de fourrure (Marie-Thérèse), painted on 4 December 1937 portrays Picasso’s clandestine mistress, the voluptuous and luminous Marié-Thérèse Walter.
The story of their meeting, outside the Galeries Lafayette in 1927, has entered folklore. ‘You have an interesting face. I would like to do a portrait of you,’ he told the bewildered teenager. ‘I feel we are going to do great things together.’

This portrait encapsulates that early impulse: the young muse depicted as a cosmopolitan girl-about-town. The art historian David Sylvester has written that ‘Picasso probably didn’t become a truly great erotic artist... until he started composing his celebrations of the joys of making love to Marie-Thérèse.’
Available as a fine art print and as a stretched canvas panel (heavy fine art canvas stretched over 1.5 inch deep edge solid wood frame).
