  • Nude in a Black Armchair (Nu au Fauteuil Noir) is a painting by Pablo Picasso. Painted on March 9, 1932, a time at which Picasso lived in Boisgeloup outside Paris, it is the first and largest of a series of paintings Picasso completed that year of his mistress Marie-Thérèse Walter. The art critic Richard Lacayo cites the painting as an example of the creative give-and-take between Picasso and Henri Matisse, in which Picasso "borrowed Matisse's voluptuous curves as a sign for pleasure and his use of black to intensify pink". Former Museum of Modern Art curator William Rubin deemed it a "squishy sexual toy,"and other critics have described a theme of fecundity being mutually displayed by both the female figure and the plant. In 1999 it was bought by Les Wexner, founder of Limited Brands, for 45.1 million USD. (en)
