Nu couche (Reclining Nude)

The erotic and curvilinear style of Reclining Nude is emblematic of Picasso’s work during his romance with Marie-Thérèse Walter which lasted from 1927 to 1935. Here Marie is sleeping, which Picasso described as the most intimate way to represent his lover. Picasso creates light with layers of matte white paint applied on Marie’s body. The sensual nature of the work is exemplified through Picasso’s use of organic forms.
