More than a Muse: Picasso’s Great Love Affair パブロ・ピカソ
Today a fantastic lecture on Pablo Picasso by my favourite expert at Sotheby’s can be seen on youtube. A marvellous opportunity to deliver all the excitements about auction houses to my readers here on ART+CULTURE. Please enjoy also the up-dates.
Quote: “In this episode of Expert Voices, Brooke Lampley describes Pablo Picasso’s remarkable love affair with Jacqueline Roque. A classically beautiful portrayal, Picasso married Rocque in 1961 – leading her to be an omnipresent constant in his life. Buste de femme assise is a highlight of the upcoming Impressionist, Modern & Contemporary Art Evening Sale (8 December 2020, New York).”

Brooke Lampley of Christie’s discussing Lot 3, “Jean Alexandre” by Amedeo Modigliani, at the press preview
Lot 3 is a very good double-sided oil on canvas by Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920). On one side is a portrait of Jean Alexander and the reverse is a female nude. They measure 31 7/8 by 23 5/8 inches. They were painted in 1909. They have been very widely exhibited and published. Jean Alexandre was the younger brother of Paul Alexandre, a dermatologist who was Modigliani’s early patron.
