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).
