Beyonce was on the scene last week at Art Basel Miami Beach fair, and though none of ARTINFO’s reporters ran into her, the R&B superstar was good enough to document her booth-hopping on her Tumblr. And that is how we are able to present you with these, Beyonce’s five favorite artworks from last week’s big fair, beginning with a Cubist-era Picasso nude (above).

Above: Beyonce listens to the ocean — which, being only a few blocks away at the time, may have been within earshot — in Vito Acconci’s clam shell sculpture at the James Cohan booth.

Above: Beyonce stares skyward — or possibly attempts to ignore the creepy lizard sculpture behind her — while posing in front of an unidentified painting.
