René Lalique | Brooch Duex Figurines Dos A Dos: 4 inch long modified oval shaped glass with a design of two back to back sitting nude women against a foliage background set in a metal pinned mount. Circa 1913.
'Pablo Picasso's 1968 portrait of his wife Jacqueline seems at first like a traditional nude, albeit one that's sketchily painted in savage scribbles of red and blue. Then you notice how Picasso has arranged things so that Jacqueline's anus and buttocks bulge out, allowing viewers to stare at her front and back simultaneously. The old goat was a few weeks short of his 87th birthday when he painted this.' (Jones, 6/1/14).
