Picasso Musee  NOV 11 2002

We explored near our apartment in the Marais a couple of days ago. After lunch, we wandered a block to the Picasso Museé in the Hôtel Salé. My favorite piece in the museum (by a considerable margin) was femme assise dans un fauteuil rouge (woman sitting in a red armchair) from 1932. This choice says almost nothing about Picasso's art and a great deal about my own artistic preferences. In general, I enjoyed the pieces from Picasso's classical and blue periods, his earlier, less self-indulgent works, this self portrait in particular.
