PICASSO AND FRANCOISE GILOT: PARIS-VALLAURIS By John Richardson, Pablo Picasso, Françoise Gilot / Gagosian Gallery

Regular price $200.00

This publication explores Picasso’s portrayals of life with Gilot and their young family in the decade they spent together. Françoise Gilot was a young budding painter when she met Picasso by chance at a café in 1943. The subsequent ten years spent together was a time of transformation in Picasso’s paintings that coincided with revolutionary inventions in lithography, sculpture, and ceramics. Picasso: L’Epoque Françoise presents for the first time several of Gilot’s paintings and drawings from the period alongside Picasso’s when the young painter was maturing while the elder continued to change the face of modern art. The fully illustrated catalogue includes a historic dialogue between Richardson and Gilot celebrating Picasso’s innovation in every medium during the postwar years of renewal.
