Le Rêve- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting By Picasso

Le Rêve
painting of a woman enjoying painting by Picasso

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm


The woman on my painting is enjoying Le Rêve (French, 'The Dream') by Pablo Picasso. Picasso then 50 years old, portrayed his 22-year-old mistress 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 oversimplified outlines and contrasted colors resembling early Fauvism.
