Walter inspired some of the Spanish artist's greatest portraits, one of which sold at Sotheby's last week for almost 50 million pounds ($70 million).Three nudes of Walter, painted over a five-day period and not displayed together since 1932, are at the heart of a show that explores the interplay between Picasso's work and his life – especially his complicated love life.Picasso's career lasted seven decades – he died at 91 in 1973 – but 1932 was one of his most fertile years.The show also includes "The Dream," a vividly colored portrait of Walter considered among Picasso's greatest works.Olga left Picasso in 1935 when Walter became pregnant, around the time the artist moved on to a new mistress and muse, Dora Maar.
