Join Barbara Blake, NEXT Village SF board member and SFMOMA alumni guide for a "Spotlight Tour" of "Picasso and Francoise -- Artists’ Love Affair in Paris and South of France (1943-1953)." 

Pablo Picasso was the most dominant and influential artist of the first half of the 20th century. Marie Francoise Gilot is a French painter, best known for her long, stormy relationship with Pablo Picasso, with whom she had two children. 

Theirs is a love (and betrayal) story about a Catalan artist and a French artist set in Paris and the South of France, their intense relationship with each other, and the paintings they both created while living together between 1943 and 1953. 

Francoise Gilot (born 1921) was a young art student when she met the already famous and formidable Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) in Paris. Their liaison lasted ten years.  During this time, both artists created paintings of each other and their two children, Paloma and Claude, as well as other paintings now exhibited in museums around the world.
