Francoise Gilot was a young painter in Pasis when she first met Picasso - he was sixty-two and she was twenty-one. During the following ten years they were lovers, worked closely together and she became mother to two of his children, Claude and Paloma. LIFE WITH PICASSO, her account of those extraordinary years, is filled with intimate and astonishing revelations about the man, his work, his thoughts and his friends - Matisse, Braque, Gertrude Stein and Giacometti among others. Francois Gilot paints a compelling portrait of her turbulent life with the temperamental genius that was Picasso.She is a superb witness to Picasso as an artist and to his views on art...

Reviews

'[Gilot's] recall of his [Picasso's] discussions about art, details of private visits to friends such as Matisse, Braque and Giacometti, and her intimate understanding of his temperament, make this work unique' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'This memoir is both a vivd portrait of a monstrously difficult man and a brilliant depiction of a great artist at work' NEW YORK TIMES '... no-one in the Picasso entourage was so close to him... fascinating.' Tim Hilton

Absolutely fabulous memoir - personal whilst also providing stylistic analysis of the contemporaneous art world. Gilot takes a no holds barred approach which creates a book that is both difficult to put down and hard to continue at the same time. Highly recommended.
