Please Identify This Painting
On the left, in front of Sloane, is Picasso's The Red Armchair.
In the middle, in front of Ferris, is Picasso's Portrait of Sylvette David.
The painting on the right, in front of Cameron, has been internet misidentified as Picasso's Seated Woman.
What is it really?

do you know how many "Seated Woman" paintings he did? numbers of them, so it probably isn't incorrect or misidentified.

I'll admit I was curious(I don't know why) after seeing it identified and felt the need to figure it out. I found no other references other than Seated Woman but I did find a few interesting things. John Hughes clearly states it's a Picasso in his commentary for Ferris Bueller even though he doesn't specifically name it. However, I couldn't find its picture shown under Picasso's works on the Art Institute of Chicago's website where all the paintings were filmed. Granted it could have left the museum in the 25 years+ since the film but I still found it odd.

Sooo Ges, from which year is that one?
I could look it up that way.

Got you all stumped, haven't I?
That's OK, I'm stumped too.
Come on...someone out there MUST know what this painting is.
