‘The day I met Marie-Thérèse I realised that I had before me what I had always been dreaming about’ – Pablo Picasso
Painted on 26 March 1934, Pablo Picasso’s Femme écrivant (Marie-Thérèse) is a joyous, colour-filled and deeply tender portrayal of Marie-Thérèse Walter, the young, golden-haired woman who, when she entered the artist’s life one winter’s evening in January 1927, changed the course of his art forever.
