Woman in Gray (Femme en gris)
This is one of several paintings Pablo Picasso created in quick succession in Paris during World War II. In this fractured bust-length portrait of a woman wearing a veil and broad-brimmed hat, the artist’s abstractions evoke the violence and bleakness of life in the German-occupied French capital.
