Le Rêve (The Dream)

Chilly afternoon
Marie-Thérèse sits dreaming
The artist’s hand paints

Le Rêve (The Dream) 1932 painted by Pablo Picasso, then 50 years old, portraying his 24-year-old mistress Marie-Thérèse Walter. It is said to have been painted in one afternoon, on January 24, 1932. It belongs to Picasso’s period of distorted depictions, with its oversimplified outlines and contrasted colours resembling early Fauvism.
