Tribute to Picasso 1933-46. Selected works from a series of forty six works. by Gerry Gleason after Picasso 2013.
I feel that Picasso's portraits of Marie Therese Walter of that period have more tenderness than we see in the portraits of Dora Maar, perhaps because she was a young mother . In times of great upheaval and war it is often the mothers and children who suffer most. I have tried to capture the onset of that tension in this image.
