ART & LiFE: Francois Gilot Dies, Aged 101

A great photograph of Gilot with Picasso.

I read Gilot’s autobiography some years ago. Very enjoyable. I’ll have to dig out my review, if it still exists, and post it here.

She was, like all Picasso’s ladies, very beautiful. A muse and a model. She was also a talented artist in her own right. Perhaps unsurprisingly, her time with Picasso left lasting impressions, both on her, as a woman, and as an artist.

There’s another book about her, by Malte Herwig, entitled The Woman Who Says No, which I’ve heard is something Picasso called her. Not read that one.
