Le Rêve - Picasso

Price in US $ - 60,000,000

Le Rêve (The Dream in French) is a 1932 oil painting belonging to Picasso's period of distorted depictions, with its oversimplified outlines and contrasted colors resembling early Fauvism. The erotic content of the painting has been noted repeatedly, with critics pointing out that Picasso painted an erect penis, presumably symbolizing his own, in the upturned face of his model.
