Picasso, prostitution, and his favourite procuress
Picasso’s representations of sex workers and brothels, often with religious overtones, as his paintings of diseased prostitutes at St. Lazare prison. In his final years, prostitutes illustrate his anxieties of impotency and death. An exhibit on the imagery of Celestina, the Spanish procuress, complements the presentation.
