Bellagio Of Fine Art Now Has A Picasso Original Portrait Never Shown Before!

Featuring an original portrait that has never been shown before in public, “Picasso: Creatures and Creativity” at Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (BGFA) is now open.

The piece, Profile of a Woman with Blue Hair, November 1, 1938, features Dora Maar, one of Picasso’s lovers. The portrait represents the eccentric and dramatic relationship between the couple using a dark palette, distorted eyes, sharp angles and straight lines. When the exhibit closes January 10, 2016, it will return to the Picasso family estate.

“Picasso: Creatures and Creativity” focuses on the famed artist’s fascination with the human figure and showcases 43 original works that have never been displayed together. BGFA is open daily 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. Last admissions are sold 30 minutes prior to closing. Guests also may enjoy complimentary daily docent tours at 2 p.m.
