Place made: Vallauris, France For over a decade beginning in 1943, Pablo Picasso's lover Françoise Gilot dominated the female imagery in his art. He repeatedly painted and drew her broad, beautiful face and lively, sometimes fiery features. In this painting, he did not so much portray Gilot as monumentalize her nude figure. The multiplication of views in her abstracted face conveys distraction or indecision; the dual aspects of her body, displaying her buttocks alongside the frontal view, have a different effect that is assertive and physical. Her ample hair is knotted like thick rope. Facets of creamy grays, whites, pinks, and browns form a mosaic of color and tone across the body, evidence of Picasso's continued exploration of Cubist fragmentation. The beauty and subtlety of the artist's brushwork and coloration create intriguing surface patterns and luscious textures.
