Le Rêve, “The Dream”, is a 1932 oil painting by Pablo Picasso. Le Rêve shows the 50-year-old Picasso’s 22-year-old mistress, Marie-Thérèse Walter, in erotic reverie.
Her head appears to be a penis; her hands form a vagina. It’s a primal painting and a blissful one, with its simplified forms and lush colours. It is said to have been painted in one afternoon, on 24 January 1932.
