Pablo Picasso, La Lecture, 1932
La Lecture is one of a series of defining works in the artist’s oeuvre in which he introduces his young lover Marie-Thérèse as a recognizable figure.
By the end of 1931 Picasso could no longer repress the creative impulse that his lover inspired, and Marie Thérèse emerged in her fully languorous form.
