This Le Reve - Picasso tapestry shows the young Marie Therese Walter, the original of which was created in 1932. Here we see the mistress of Pablo Picasso in a dream, or le reve, lying on an orange red couch. In a style called Fauvism, he creates his subjects with the focus on strong color and forms created by the process of painting itself. The play of color is striking and subtle at the same time, as we see the striking couch in contrast with the more subdued yet two toned face and the yellow hair as a tie between the bolder and pastel colors. The Spanish painter created storms of attention in his influence on Cubism in the art movements. Here his model and mistress, Marie is seen sleeping in a reverie and calmness. This French tapestry Le Reve is backed with a lining and a tunnel for easy hanging.
