Gilot is an internationally regarded artist whose paintings, drawings, monotypes, and other works are included in the permanent collections of several European and U.S. museums. Influenced by Picasso and Matisse, these works make their primary statement through the use of color. Picasso was impressed enough by her first exhibition and its anti-Nazi sentiments to initiate their ten-year love affair, and Gilot served him as both model and muse, inspiring many of his paintings while mothering two of their children. This thematically arranged retrospective of Gilot's oeuvre is particularly noteworthy for its generous color illustrations and insightful accompanying text. A 92-page biography, written by Yoakum, curator of the artist's archives, concludes the book. Including both early works from her School of Paris years and more recent works, this definitive volume replaces the exhibition catalogs published in the last two decades. A rich, delightful addition to any 20th-century art collection. THIS COPY IS HAND SIGNED BY MS. GILOT.
