A PIECE OF ART: DORA MAAR AU CHAT
a difficult period. The setting shows an interesting composition of form, characterized by
vertically inclined planes. The painting shows Dora Maher sitting in a wooden chair, with a
small black cat on her shoulders. It is said that Picasso was frustrated and he used the
portraits and their abstract form to express his frustration.
This type of work is typical of cubism, an art movement which started in France in 1907.
Artists looked at subjects from different perspectives and used geometric shapes. Cubism
used brilliant colours with powerful effects.
Dora Maar au Chat wasn't exhibited until 2005. It was sold to collectors. This picture was
sold in 2006 for over $95 million. And now, it is owned by private collectors.
