Picasso's Wives and Lovers, by k Madison Moore

Picasso - Wives and Lovers

(click the photos for details)

12 x 16 Oil Painting on Canvas

Art within Art Series


I posed this a few months ago and decided to rework the entire painting and add a lot more detail.

I added a lot more glazes for depth and highlights that I wish could be seen better with a camera.
So many of my collectors mention that they saw so many more things in the painting once in hand.
Maybe if I was a better photographer? This is a great painting with a great story!  Enjoy!

This was so much work, so much research and so much fun! I decided to research all the woman in Picasso's life and this is what I came up with. There were sooo many that I actually had to paint this on a larger canvas of 12 x 16 to fit them all in!  This is just the main wives and lovers and the ones that he painted. There were several more. Here is a little history on them from left on the easel,  to right and the 2 wives seated at the table. Notice Picasso peeking down from the staircase at all of his beauties.
On the steps is one of Picasso's hats and a box of cigars that I found he smoked. The flooring is also a clip from one of his paintings and full of color. Candles, Wine, Picasso, Wives and Lovers.
