Pablo Picasso

Maler, Grafiker und Bildhauer, 1881-1973

Picassos umfangreiches Gesamtwerk umfasst Gemälde, Zeichnungen, Grafiken, Plastiken und Keramiken, deren Gesamtzahl auf 50.000 geschätzt wird und geprägt ist durch eine große Vielfalt künstlerischer Ausdrucksformen. Kein anderer Künstler des 20. Jahrhunderts war so umstritten und keiner ist so berühmt geworden wie Picasso. Keiner war so früh schon, so lange und schließlich so übereinstimmend als der entscheidende Künstler seiner Epoche gedeutet worden. Keiner wurde so oft zum Thema in Dichtungen oder Filmen. Unter den aktuell zehn teuersten Gemälden der Welt befinden sich vier Werke von Picasso.

4.500 € (83304)

Note signed by Picasso „Picasso“ to Jean Leymarie of the Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris: „Joyente fête - Jean […]“. Signed by Picasso and Jacqueline Roque Picasso, Catherine Hutin-Blay et Bella. Jacqueline Picasso (1927–1986) was the last muse and second wife of Pablo Picasso. Their marriage lasted 11 years until his death, during which time he created over 400 portraits of her, more than any of Picasso's other loves. Catherine Hutin-Blay was her daughter, and step daughter of Pablo Picasso. Pablo Picasso perhaps the most influential and recognizable painter of the 20th century, is well known for his deep love and appreciation for women.

Although he had many lovers throughout his life, only eight of them became his muses. The first of his muses was Fernande Olivier (1881-1966), who was also his first long-time partner. She is depicted in many pieces from his Rose Period. She left him after he became to possessive. The second of his muses was Eva Gouel (1885-1915) who was one of Fernande’s friends. Eva is often called the „queen of his cubist works” as she appeared in a series of his works of that genre. The third of his muses, Olga Khokhlova (1891-1955), a Russian ballerina, became his first wife. She was a big opponent of the Cubism he was developing at the time and demanded to be painted in a completely different style. The fourth of Picasso’s muses was Marie-Thérèse Walter (1909-1977), who was 29 years younger then Picasso. She modelled for his Surrealistic pieces. The fifth muse was Dora Maar (1907-1997). She was a photographer and a painter and witness to him creating his masterpiece Guernica. With Françoise Gilot (1921) Picasso had two children. In 1964 she published her memoirs called Life with Picasso and moved to New York. He painted a series of at least 20 drawings of Geneviève Laporte (1926-2012), who ended the relationship in 1953..

45.000 € (86175/BN57127)

Portrait of the Swiss publisher Albert Skira (1904-76), dated and inscribed with the dedication: "Pour ces 25 ans d'éditions et 30 Ans d'Amitié. Picasso". The expressive profile of Skira, including parts of his shoulders and one arm, is representative of Picasso's sketchy and graphic art oriented late style. It is the last of seven numbered portraits of the publisher that Picasso drew on the evening of 16 September 1953 in the booth of a restaurant in Golfe-Juan. - Skira "played an important role in Picasso's life in that in the fall of 1930 he commissioned him to illustrate Ovid's Metamorphoses.

Picasso achieved surrealist transformations in an admirably classical graphic style [...]. This was one of the reasons that led Vollard to commission him to produce what was to become the Vollard Suite. Skira subsequently offered him another opportunity by creating, in 1933, the splendid magazine 'Minotaure': for the cover of the first issue, Picasso created a virtuoso collage" (cf. Pierre Daix, Dictionnaire Picasso). - With original fold mark and insignificant tears in the fold. An unrelated note in ink on the verso reads: "Vauthier baryton"..

"Ma chère Inès, voici une lettre qu'il faudrait apporter chez Monsieur de Sarrise. Bien des amitiés de tout le monde. Je vous embrasse." Belle signature.

Elle restera à son service jusqu'en 1970 et fut, avec Jaime Sahartés, la seule personne à qui Picasso faisait une confiance totale. à l'occasion de l'expulsion de la rue des Grands Augustins en 1967, c'est elle qui se chargea de répertoirer toutes les oeuvres qui s'y trouvaient, celles de Picasso et des Grands maîtres le peintre collectionnait.

Portraitphotographie m. eigenh. Unterschrift.

Sehr schöne Originalphotographie, von Picasso am oberen rechten Rand signiert. Mit Widmung: „Pour Monsieur J. Robert Colle. Picasso“ - Robert Colle (1918-1994), ursprünglich Historiker, war seit 1963 Kurator des Musée de Royan. Mit Colle hatte Picasso während seines Aufenthalts in Royan gesprochen. Das Städtchen Royan im Südwesten Frankreichs, spielte eine wichtige Rolle in Picassos Leben. Traumatisiert durch die Bombardierung von Guernica am 26. April 1937 im spanischen Bürgerkrieg, flüchtete Picasso nach Royan. Er kam am Vorabend der Kriegserklärung am 2. September 1939 in Royan an und bezog mit seiner neuen Freundin Dora Maar das Hôtel du Tigre. In Royan lebte auch seine Geliebte Marie-Thérèse Walter. 1940 mietete Picasso ein großes, sehr helles Studio. Royen sollte die Ära der Sohlen, der Seeaale und der Spinnenkrabben einleiten. So sind in Royen beispielsweise seine Gemälde "Stillleben mit einem Schafschädel, Royan, 6. Oktober 1939" oder "Trois crânes, Royan, 17. Oktober 1939" entstanden. Am 15. August 1940 malte Picasso sein berühmtestes Royan-Gemälde: Le Café des Bains. Dies ist die Ansicht aus seines Ateliers. Am 24. August 1940 verließ Picasso Royan und kehrte nach Paris zurück. Sein Atelier wurde bei einem Bombenanschlag zerstört.
