Pablo Picasso’s Woman in the Studio

7

Picasso is coming to Norman, rather, one of his more famous paintings will be on display at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma beginning Aug. 3. Woman in the Studio is one of several works completed under the same name in 1956 as the artist, well into his 70s at the time, continued to explore and push art into expressions recognized as pivotal to modern art. He painted a young Jacqueline Roque, who eventually became his second wife, with subdued, shadowy tones and a heavy black line deeply contrasting with brighter colors and softer lines found in the other works. This piece is on loan from the St. Louis Art Museum for about a year. During its stay at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, the painting will be displayed with several other Picasso pieces from the Norman museum’s permanent collection. www.ou.edu/fjjma
