Oι γυναίκες του Πικάσο

Picasso was infamous for his love affairs. Here are 87 slides of paintings, drawings & photos of the women who inspired him, loved him, and those he drove mad. The muses were:

Muse 1: FERNANDE OLIVIER (1904 -1912)
In 1904, Picasso met a model named Fernande Olivier who would become his mistress for the next seven years. His relationship with her influenced the mood of his paintings and started what is known as his "Rose Period.

Muse 2: EVA GOUEL a/k/a MARCELLE HUMBERT (1912-1915) "Ma Jolie"
Eva Gouel (Marcelle Humbert) was gentle, delicate and frail. Picasso, who was superstitious and believed objects (like paintings) could be used as weapons, was afraid to depict her. Instead, he changed her name and hid little love messages in his Cubist work. Eva was very sick. When it became clear she was dying, Picasso left her


Muse 3: OLGA KHOKHLOVA (1917-1927)
Olga was a ballerina of Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, Picasso's first wife, and mother of his first child Paulo. She introduced him to high society.

Muse 4: MARIE-THERESE WALTER (1927-1936)

She eventually hanged herself after Picasso's death

Muse 5: DORA MAAR (1936-1944) "The Weeping Woman"
Dora was a Surrealist photographer, poet and painter. Picasso was attracted by her beauty and. She grew up in Argentina and spoke Spanish. She became Picasso's companion as she documented his creation of "Guernica." In the course of their relationship Picasso painted her in a number of guises, some realistic, some benign, others tortured or threatening. Their relationship lasted nearly nine years. Like all the women in his life, Dora was cruelly abused emotionally by the narcissistic Picasso. After he left her, she found solace in Roman Catholicism ("After Picasso, God.")v She spent her last years living between Paris and Provence in the house Picasso had given her.

Muse 8: JACQUELINE ROQUE (1953-1973)

Their marriage in 1961 was also the means of one last act of revenge against Françoise. Their marriage lasted 20 years until his death, during which time he created more than 400 portraits of her.
