Picasso Ingres: Face to Face

post-image

In room 46 of the London National Gallery, two portraits hang, one by classical painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, the other by Pablo Picasso. Ingres’s portrait is of society beauty, Madame Moitessier (1856). Picasso’s portrait, nearby, is of his mistress, Marie-Thérèse Walter, entitled Woman with a Book (1932). 

You may wonder why these works have been given their own room at the National Gallery. The answer is simple. In this miniscule show, entitled Picasso Ingres: Face to Face, art lovers are being invited to explore the story behind these two interrelated paintings. This is the first time they have been brought together.
