Picasso and his Muses, By Dr. Jacqueline Cockburn

When Picasso met the seventeen-year-old Marie Therese Walter outside a department store in Paris in 1927 it was L’Amour Fou. Together over a decade and far longer in his thoughts she was one of his greatest muses in many ways. This lecture considers her roles as clandestine muse, phallic muse, trapped muse, sleeping muse and charts his inspired work leading up to the Spanish Civil war.
