Picasso and His  Women

Liz Strang

 10:00 for 10:30

Beechwood School, Tunbridge Wells 

 

 

 Picasso’s life could be described as a collage of his woman.   Beginning – naturally - with his mother and his sister followed by his early mistresses Fernande and Eva.  We see how his portraits of these women show his early development and experiments in cubism. Then come his depictions of the 5 most significant women in his life, his first wife, the Russian Olga Khoklova and then his “aphrodite” Marie Therese Walter, and the stormy revelation of his affair with her in 1932.   Later come Dora Maar, the only one  with whom he spoke his native Spanish, Francoise Gilot, the mother of two of his children and finally his second wife Jacqueline Rocque.  We look at how his styles change when each is in the ascendancy, how the character of each influenced him and how the different ways in which he depicted them show the variations and developments of his multi-faceted work.
