World in and between the world wars. People met in Paris, oeuvres scattered around. Ceci est un collage personnel of those people in Paris and their art, regardless of a 'real' timeline.

Weeping Woman by Pablo Picasso, 1937.

An artist isn’t as free as he sometimes appears. It’s the same way with the portraits I’ve done of Dora Maar. I couldn’t make a portrait of her laughing. For me she’s the weeping woman. For years I’ve painted her in torture forms, not through sadism, and not with pleasure either; just obeying a vision that forced itself on me. It was a deep reality, not the superficial one. -Pablo Picasso
