Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fran oise Gilot (born November 26, 1921) is a French painter and bestselling author living in New York City and Paris. She is known for being the lover and artistic muse of Pablo Picasso from 1944 to 1953, and the mother of his children, Claude Picasso and Paloma Picasso. She later married the American vaccine pioneer, Jonas Salk. Gilot was born at Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. Her father was a businessman and agronomist, and her mother was a watercolor artist. She studied English literature at Cambridge University and the British Institute in Paris (now University of London Institute in Paris). While training to be a lawyer, Gilot was known to skip morning law classes to feed her true passion: art. Despite her mother being an artist herself, the extent of the young woman's artistic pursuits inexplicably drove her away from immediate family to her grandmother's attic.show more
