Picasso and His Muses
Free for Members
Picasso and His Muses: Goddesses and Doormats Pablo is dead, Picasso is eternal. This one hour lecture analyses his oeuvre through his women. Some of them lived with Picasso, some of them lived for Picasso. The research was based on diaries and books written by his partners as well as by his descendants. He must have been a true charmer of women. Clever, intelligent women lost their senses over Picasso, others committed suicide, and only one not only survived his spell but later got married and had a child. It is astonishing that the older he became, the younger his partners had to be. SCHEDULE: Thursday, March 21, 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM This presentation will take place online.
