Picasso’s Sylvette Structure outside the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam Centrum, The Netherlands is a real Picasso. The museum opened in 1849 & houses collections from Jacob Otto Boijmans & Daniel George Van Berningen. It holds lots of medieval to comtemporary art from Rembrant, Monet, Van Gogh, Dali & this masterpiece by Pablo Picasso & what a site it is! I’m glad I decided to visit & admire this great work of art.
The City of Rotterdam accquired it following a seven year process.
The Sylvette, depicts the 19 year old Sylvette David. A young woman with a youthful classic profile. Picasso attempts to capture her unique characteristics in a great style & damn do I like it!
Created in 1954, the concrete sculpture Sylvette is an enlargement of one of the small sculptures Picasso created on sheet metal. It’s a nice piece by Picasso that has stood the test of time as it’s still in great condition today.
I thought I’d share it with you because damn is it fine!😀
