Pablo Picasso’s Marie-Thérèse Walter in Dubai

Pablo Picasso’s iconic Portrait of Marie-Thérèse Walter will be on display at Sotheby’s Dubai in DIFC from Monday, September 25, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. & Tuesday, September 26, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

This is the first time the painting has been exhibited in the Middle East, and it is a unique opportunity for art lovers in Dubai to see one of the most important works of art in the world.

The painting was created in 1932, and it is considered to be one of Picasso’s masterpieces. It depicts his muse and lover, Marie-Thérèse Walter, in a surrealist style. The painting is full of vibrant colors and dynamic shapes, and it is a testament to Picasso’s skill as a painter.

The Portrait of Marie-Thérèse Walter is also notable for its provenance. It was purchased by art collector Emily Fisher Landau in 1968, and it has hung in her living room for the past 50 years. The painting has never been sold at auction before, and it is estimated to be worth over $120 million (440 million DHS).


The exhibition of the Portrait of Marie-Thérèse Walter at Sotheby’s Dubai is a major event for the art world in the Middle East. It is a unique opportunity to see one of the most important works of art in the world, and it is sure to attract art lovers from all over the region.

“One of the greatest works of modern art, we have ever brought to auction, it is the perfect artwork to showcase and continue our commitment to bringing the best of art and culture to the region,” said Katia Nounou Boueiz, Head of Sotheby’s UAE.

If you want to see the painting before it is sold, you’ll need to head to Sotheby’s next week, before it embarks on a world tour ending up in the USA. This is a limited-time opportunity, so don’t miss out.
