Dora Maar with Cat - Pablo Picasso

Price in US $ - 95,200,000

Dora Maar with Cat
A world famous painting by Pablo Picasso, it depicts Dora Maar, the painter's Croatian mistress, seated on a chair with a small cat perched on her shoulders. The faceted planes of her body and richly layered surface of brushstrokes impart a monumental and sculptural quality to this portrait

This painting is one of Picasso’s most valued depictions of his lover and artistic companion. Their partnership had been one of intellectual exchange and intense passion -- Dora was an artist, spoke Picasso’s native Spanish, and shared his political concerns.
