This publication explores Picasso’s portrayals of life with Françoise Gilot and their young family in the decade they spent together. Gilot was a young budding painter when she met Picasso by chance at a café in 1943. The subsequent years spent together was a time of transformation in Picasso’s paintings that coincided with revolutionary inventions in lithography, sculpture, and ceramics. This volume presents for the first time several of Gilot’s paintings and drawings from the period alongside Picasso’s.
