Always love working with Picasso. I really like yellow 
and blue together so did as many hues of each as I could
but of course with a touch of red!

Our lady here is also my impression of one of Pablo's
nude paintings.
It was fun creating her reflection in the window. I 
wouldn't mind having this chase in my bedroom either!

The Dream by Pablo Picasso

Le Rêve  FRENCH "The Dream") is a  1932 oil painting (130 × 97 cm) by Pablo Picasso, then 50 years old, portraying his 22-year-old mistress Marie-Thérèse Walter.

Le Rêve was purchased for $7,000 in 1941 by Victor and Sally Ganz of New York City. This purchase began their 50-year collection of works by just five artists: Picasso,  Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella and Eve Hesse.. After the Ganzes died (Victor in 1987 and Sally in 1997), their collection, including Le Rêve, was sold at Christie's auction house on November 11, 1997, as a means of settling their inheritance tax bill. Le Rêve sold for an unexpectedly high $48.4 million, at the time the sixth most expensive painting most expensive painting sold (tenth when taking inflation into account). The entire collection set a record for the sale of a private collection, bringing $206.5 million. The total amount paid by the Ganzes over their lifetime of collecting these pieces was around $2 million.
