Spanish artist Pablo Picasso was a notorious womaniser who had a number of muses during his life. Of the seven important women he met, two killed themselves and two went mad. Another died of natural causes four years into their relationship.
But it was was his second wife and last lover, Jacqueline Roque, who won Picasso’s focus during the later years of his life
Paintings Picasso dedicated to Jacqueline are currently on display at Times Square.
The 13 artworks from “The Picasso and Jacqueline Exhibition” are being exhibited outside of Spain for the first time.
Twelve of the artworks (linocuts) in the exhibition were finished in 1962 using the linoleum printing technique and are inspired by cubism. The oil portrait of Jacqueline on canvas is a piece that belongs to the artist’s unique complete series that can be found in the Museu Picasso in Barcelona.
