Ar Biography & Autobiograph Histor Nonfictio HTML:Françoise Gilot??s candid memoir remains ??one of the most illuminating [books] we??ve had on the mind and spirit of Picasso???and gives fascinating insight into the intense and creative life shared by two modern artists (Los Angeles Times)
Françoise Gilot was in her early twenties when she met the sixty-one-year-old Pablo Picasso in 1943. Brought up in a well-to-do upper-middle-class family, who had sent her to Cambridge and the Sorbonne and hoped that she would go into law, the young woman defied their wishes and set her sights on being an artist. Her introduction to Picasso led to a friendship, a love affair, and a relationship of ten years, during which Gilot gave birth to Picasso??s two children, Paloma and Claude. Gilot was one of Picasso??s muses; she was also very much her own woman, determined to make herself into the remarkable painter she did indeed become.
Life with Picasso is about Picasso the artist and Picasso the man. We hear him talking about painting and sculpture, his life, his career, as well as other artists, both contemporaries and old masters. We glimpse Picasso in his many and volatile moods, dismissing his work, exultant over his work, entertaining his various superstitions, being an anxious father. But Life with Picasso is not only a portrait of a great artist at the height of his fame; it is also a picture of a talented young woman of exacting intelligence at the outset

This is an epic journey over only a decade, and I think Gilot is absolutely amazing. While the book is supposed to be about Picasso, I’ve decided that he was a giant asshole with a few good insights (but the narcissism along with the mansplaining overrides everything that could potentially be good) and would rather continue to learn more about Gilot. You can tell that she has one of those total recall memories which is amazing as she wrote this about ten years after the ten years she’s writing about. But mostly her self awareness shines when needed, and I want to know more about this woman who literally just turned 101 years old; it’s nice to know she’s still surviving almost sixty years after writing this book. Also I loved the little chapters about so many varying characters throughout the French world of art and letters; you could take one and expand it into a whole novel or screenplay. ( )

Very interesting biography. I sometimes became frustrated with the author’s perceived coldness towards Picasso, but overall I’m glad I read this book. ( )

I think I've said more than once on LT that I can't stand celebrity memoirs, but I think I will have to make an exception for this memoir by Picasso's second wife (or was she his third? can't remember). I liked it a lot, because she focuses on the art. There is a lot of insight and information on Picasso's art, as well as his bombastic personality. It was during their marriage that Picasso began experimenting with ceramics, and I had not previously been aware of Picasso's ceramics.

Gilot was an art student herself when she became involved in Picasso's circles immediately prior to WW II, and in later life became a serious artist in her own right. There's not a lot of "celebrity" gossip, though of course there is lots of information about other artists of the time. I particularly enjoyed learning about Matisse, and how different his personality style was from Picasso's. The two enjoyed a friendly rivalry.

Recommended for those interested in art.

After Dali, Picasso has always been my second favorite artist, while a cluster of others are right behind both. Sadly, after having read a number of books both by and about each, in this case Picasso, I feel like I've been left a little saddened and disillusioned about some of these men, artists. Some of them simply were not very good people and while it's certainly not new for creative types, creative geniuses, to be eccentric, antisocial, narcissistic, flat out insane or any combo of things, it's still disappointing, to me anyway, so I've been trying to focus on the works, the art, and not the artist so much, because we all have our warts and who am I to judge? Thus, I'll continue to focus on the artistic brilliances of these and other gifted artists, writers, etc., and I'll do my best to be content with that... ( )

A fun read. Despite his being an arrogant, sexist little ass, she treats him quite fairly and her observations and explanations about his art processes are really quite good. She also has some hilarious stories involving his eccentricities and general home life that are a lot of fun. It was a different time, in so many ways.

I appreciate that some question the co-writer's free use of quotes around lengthy passages by Picasso, as if they were verbatim. Perhaps that was an editor's decision. Gilot is known for apparently having a photographic memory, in addition to having kept a journal and being in possession of many letters from Picasso. For me that was a minor nit. I loved it. ( )

At the end of Life with Picasso, as Picasso tries to prevent Gilot from leaving, he sneers, "You imagine people will be interested in you? ... Even if you think people like you, it will only be a kind of curiosity they will have about a person whose life has touched mine."Reading Life with Picasso exclusively as art history or feminist history would fulfill Picasso's cruel prophecy. The book's intellectual heft is in its art criticism, even as its emotional arc lies in Picasso and Gilot's unequal romance. Only by appreciating both can readers accord Gilot the respect she deserves.
 
Francoise Gilot levede sammen med Picasso fra 1943 og i ca. ti år og er mor til to af hans børn. Hun havde et selvstændigt liv som maler og var en jævnbyrdig diskussionspartner for ham. Med fotografisk hukommelse har hun i samarbejde med journalisten Carlton Lake skrevet en nøgtern og fascinerende bog om sit liv med maleren. 'En vittig, rystende og informativ skildring af malergeniet som naturkraft.' - Information.
