Femme Assise Dans un Jardin - Pablo Picasso

Price in US $ - 49.6 million 

Femme assise dans un jardin (Woman Sitting In A Garden) was painted by Pablo Picasso in a single day in 1938 on a canvas sized 131 X 97 cm. This arresting portrait of Dora Maar seated on a chair in a garden is a dense, complex and exuberantly colored image. It is one of the greatest and grandest depictions the artist made of his fascinating and remarkable mistress in the pre-war period. The painting reflects the challenging relationship which the artist had with his mistress who was a poet, painter, photographer and intellectual.
