Artist Picasso needs no introduction. From April 14th- June 25th some of his work involving Marie-Thérèse can be seen at the Gagosian Gallery. Marie-Thérèse met Picasso on the street of Paris when she was 17 years old. He was immediately infatuated with Marie-Thérèse and they began a secret love affair. She become the subject of many of his paintings, with her statuesque build and very square face. Marie-Thérèse can be seen in some of Picasso’s finest work including many of the pieces at this exbibit. There are also several pieces of Marie-Thérèse and Picasso’s daughter Maya. This exhibition shows work from the years 1927-1940 (the span of their relationship). Picasso left Marie-Thérèse in 1940 for artist Dora Maar. It’s believed that though Picasso fell out of love with Marie-Thérèse, she never fell out of love with Picasso. Marie-Thérèse killed herself in 1977, four years after Picasso’s death, in the south of France.
