Seated woman ,Françoise ( Femme assise, Françoise) – Pablo Picasso Painting - Large Art Prints
The Femme assise that Picasso painted on 19 March 1953 is Françoise Gilot—she characteristically wears her abundant tresses gathered into a chignon, and as the artist often depicted her, she is arrayed in green. Françoise was wearing a turban of this color when they first met in 1943. Picasso transformed her bouffant coiffure into large verdant leaves when he painted her in the spring of 1946 as La Femme-fleur (Zervos, vol. 14, no. 167). “You’re like a growing plant,” he remarked to his new amour (quoted in F. Gilot, with C. Lake, Life with Picasso, New York, 1964, p. 119). Stark white against the surrounding darkness, Françoise’s oval face is a lunar presence; she remained for Picasso throughout their relationship a mysteriously feminine, intelligent, and often strong-willed queen of the night.
