Pablo Picasso's portrayal of an Italian woman carries striking resemblance to that of the traditional image of the Virgin Mary. Clothed in a white veil with a red and blue dress or robe, the figure wears the same outfit that the Christian saint is often shown in. Estate of Picasso, (Marina Picasso) pencil signature and embossed blindstamp lower right. Ink stamp verso 'Approved by the heirs of Pablo Picasso'. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
