Pablo Picasso

at Gagosian Gallery (Frieze Art Fair New York 2012)

La femme-fleur (Françoise Gilot), 1946
This is a an attractive, beautiful and elegant woman. She is full aware of her beauty. And she uses her attractiveness to the full extent. You can think that this is her only weapon. But she has a "killing" combination of beauty and a sharp mind. But it's not a weapon, it's a tool. She uses her talents as a flower that attracts bees. It has nothing to do with bees, the flower has its own agenda. The woman uses them to attract others and to observe them. She is an artist, because the real artist is an observer. Her observations nurtures her attractiveness and  deepens her mind.
