A Deeper Look at Picasso's The Dream and Man Ray's Observatory Time - Picasso - The Dream is a rather unique piece of work at first glance, but the deeper you look into it the more there is to be revealed. Being a painting of one of Picasso's mistresses, you can get a broader look on the whole ideal. A mistress by definition is one who is not only having a sexual relationship with a usually married man for profit, love, lust, a sick game, whatever it may be, but also one who usually has to hide it for the sake of the man and other times for herself as well. I believe that's rather brilliantly portrayed in this painting, right down to the split two halves of this woman....   [tags: paintings, lover, sexual] 533 words
