    I bought at Estate Sale and looks very unique, frame damaged and want to remove sealed backing paper to see if signed but afraid of lowering value if doing so. Any help identifying picture would be so appreciated. THANKS

      "Woman with Book" 1932.

      Pablo Picasso
      Spanish, 1881-1973
      Oil on canvas
      51-3/8 x 38-1/2 in. (130.5 x 97.8 cm)
      The Norton Simon Foundation - current owner.

      The artist, sold to:
      [Paul Rosenberg, Paris, confiscated during WWII; claim for monetary compensation received from French government.]
      Antoine Rinieri, Paris, sold 4 August 1960 to;
      [Paul Rosenberg and Co., New York, stock no. 5832, sold 13 December 1960 to];
      Robert Ellis Simon, Los Angeles, to;
      The Norton Simon Foundation.

      Basing his work on one of Ingres’s extraordinary portrait of Ines Moitessier, Picasso transforms the earnestness of the mid-nineteenth century sitter into a dreamy portrait of his current lover, Marie-Thérèse Walter (1909–1977). The chromatic riot and the web of thick black lines describing the simplified forms of both her bourgeois interior and her ripe sexuality contrast with the dreamy mystery of the sitter’s gaze. In so doing, Picasso has, to be sure, updated the genre—highlighting at once the push and pull between realism and abstraction that lies at the heart of twentieth-century portraiture and of modern art over all.

      Thank you so much for your response. Do you think it would take away from its value if I remove the original backing paper since the frame is damaged

      I do not believe so. It is a print, well mounted. If you want to reframe it you will have to take off the paper, I'd think. No other way.

      Not at will hopefully list the printer but no, remove away...
