About this title


In this memoir, Francoise Gilot describes the friendship between Picasso and Matisse and her own participation in it. An artist and a writer herself, she lived with Picasso from 1946 to 1954. Between Matisse and Picasso there was a gap of 12 years, between Matisse and Gilot a gap of 52 years. Gilot gained the confidence and adoration of both men and she recalls their affection for each other, their rivalry and creative interaction. Drawing on letters, their conversations and many anecdotes, Gilot reconstructs a time and a place unique in 20th-century art history with freshness and clarity. Francoise Gilot also wrote "Life with Picasso" and "Interface: The Painter and the Mask".

From the Publisher:
