"A lushly drawn drama of Pablo Picasso's muses, the secret love affairs that inspired some of his greatest works, and the enduring influence of love and art Alana Olson always felt connected to Pablo Picasso. Sure, as a recently graduated art historian and aspiring writer in 1950s New York, Alana was bound to encounter the most renowned artist of the era, but it was her late Italian mother's particular fascination with the man that inspired Alana's doctoral thesis on his work. An assignment for a profile on Picasso from her dream publication leads Alana to intimate interviews with Sara Murphy and Irene Legut-women from a once-vibrant social circle that included the artist. Through their conversations, the women paint a luxurious picture of their time along the French Riviera in 1923, revealing to Alana not only an intimate glimpse into the life and work of the genius, but also unseen works of art, memories of a whirlwind romance, and hidden details that bring Alana closer to Picasso then she ever imagined. Desperate to know the man who influenced so many parts of her life, Alana dives into the glamorous lives of the past. But to do so she must contend with her own reality, including a strained engagement, the male-dominated world of art journalism, and the rising threat to communists in America"--… (mais)

Alana Olsen, a journalist, is not anxious to be married to William. So, she pitches a story to her editor, an exclusive portrait of Picasso. Alana meets with Sara Murphy to interview her about Picasso, the artist and the ladies' man. Sara tells of the summer of 1923, when she and her husband, Gerald, vacationed with Picasso, his wife-Olga, and his mistress, Irène, as well as other artists.. A maid, Anna, cautioned Sara against becoming involved with Picasso. Anna Martina (Marti) became a designer, and is Alana's mother.
Hearing Sara tell the story causes Alana to dig much deeper into the life of Picasso, her own identity, and how it may be tied to him. Her research covers his multiple relationships with women, and what that means to her.
There is a lot of infidelity in this book. This is a study in the hold some people have over others when they are charismatic.
I knew a little about Picasso, but not as much as was revealed in this historical fiction novel. ( )
