About

This sensual reflection of love and lust depicts a nude Marie-Thérèse Walter, Picasso’s much younger  lover and muse asleep in an armchair with a book on her lap. When Picasso and Marie-Thérèse first met, their relationship had to be kept secret in fear of Picasso’s wife, the ballerina Olga Khokhlova, finding out, so his earliest representations of Marie-Thérèse are subtly in the background of works. La Lecture is the first time that she appeared as the subject of Picasso’s work, and when it was exhibited at a Picasso retrospective, Olga found out that Picasso was in love with another woman which led to the dissolution of their marriage.

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free matt board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
