books0977:

Louise of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (1802). Jozef Maria Grassi (Austrian, 1758-1838).

Louise (1776–1810) was Queen consort of Prussia as the wife of King Frederick William III. The marriage produced nine children, including the future King Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia and German Emperor Wilhelm I.

In 1805 she contacted the Tsar of Russia and the Emperor of Austria to sign a treaty with Prussia to form an alliance against Napoleon. In 1807, after disastrous losses, she met Napoleon to plead for favorable terms. Napoleon callously called her “the only real man in Prussia.”

books0977:

The Three Dancers (1925). Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881‑1973). Oil on canvas. Tate.

The jagged forms convey an explosion of energy. Symbols of Picasso’s recollections of a triangular affair, which resulted in the heart-broken suicide of his friend Carlos Casagemas. Love, sex and death are linked in an ecstatic dance. The left-hand dancer in particular seems possessed by uncontrolled, Dionysian frenzy. Her face relates to a mask from Torres Strait, New Guinea, owned by the artist, and points to Picasso’s association of ‘primitive’ forms with expressiveness and sexuality.
