An interesting book, but I kept wondering how Ms Gilot remembered all of what she wrote about. Did she take notes, knowing one day that she would write a book about her life with Picasso? If all of this is true, I also wonder why she put up with his behavior? But then, again, women today put up with a lot when in love with a narcissistic individual, don't they? Fascinating reading for anyone interested in knowing how other people are and especially one so well known for his artistic contributions to the world. I recommend this book, even with all of my wonderings.
Ms. Gilot was an artist in her own right. She co-authored this book with Mr Carlton Luke, who speaks of having access to Picasso's letters to Ms. Gilot, and also of her notes and journals of the ten year period that she lived with Picasso.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in art, and especially Picasso's unique style. References throughout the book mention art that will be known by Picasso's fans; reading this book will shine much light on how an artist thinks as he is producing his masterpieces.
Even though this book is from the 1960's, it is still a great book to help to understand the life of an painter. ( )

Francoise Gilot met Picasso during the German occupation of Paris, she was twenty-one, he was sixty-two.  For nearly a decade, Gilot shared her life with this giant of the art world, giving birth to two of his children, working as his model, and sharing his world.  This uniquely candid and vivid memoir takes readers behind the Piccasso legend to meet the man.
