The Weeping Woman by Pablo Picasso

The Weeping Woman (1937), is one of many paintings of Dora Maar by Picasso. When it comes to the Maar portraits, Picasso was sending a message, often to Maar herself. The portrait is representative of the way he perceived her, and it is said that when Picasso depicted Maar with a hat on her head it was, to him, a sign of madness – her madness.
