'Dora Maar Front View' by Picasso
Dora Maar Portrait by Man Ray

Dora Maar - Portrait by Man Ray

She was Picasso's muse, lover and the subject of his 'Weeping Woman' paintings amongst others. Dora was a well renowned fashion photographer and political activist, who rubbed shoulders with the likes of Man Ray (who took several portraits of her) and Andre Breton (father of the surrealist art movement). Strikingly beautiful, it isn't hard to see why Picasso was so obsessed with her.
