A Significant Portrait by Pablo Picasso

Posted: February 14, 2018 12:31 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

Pablo Picasso’s significant 1958 portrait of Jacqueline Roque as L’Arlésienne is currently on offer at M.S. Rau Antiques.

The work, which is numbered IV, is the culminating canvas of a series of four he composed in a single day of the young Roque as a woman from Arles. Bringing together Picasso’s life-long obsession with the theme of the Arlésienne and his fixation on the women in his life, the powerful portrait is a poignant example of hi...

At the ateliers of Aubusson, tapestries are woven today in the same way they were hundreds of years ago. An art both ancient and modern, the tradition of Aubusson woven masterpieces experienced a modern revival in the early twentieth century. Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Georges Braque, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall – these are just some of the master artists of the 1930s who contributed their works to the ancient art. From the 13th century, tapestry making was a flourishing art in France. At a time when the upper echelon of society resided in large, expansive estates, tapestries were us...

Edith Branson (1891 - 1976) An American Modernist

Posted: September 24, 2010 11:55 Last Updated: | James Puzinas

Edith Branson was an American modernist painter who created her own interpretation of the multitude of avant-garde movements that blossomed in Europe and New York City in the early 20th century. Most of Branson's work is reflective of her personal life as a young woman living in the 1920's and 1930's. Though not autobiographical, her surrealistic works introduce a woman's introspection into the many social changes of the day. Edith Branson was a significant contributor to the New York art scene both through her numerous exhibitions and in the roles she served as a director of the S...
