Artist of the Day- Francoise Gilot (click on image to view individually)

Francoise Gilot was one of Picasso’s mistresses. She was 21 when she moved in with him. He was 61. After 2 children and 10 years she left him, the only woman to do so. She later married Jonas Salk and settled with him in the U.S. She wrote a great book about her time with the artist, Life With Picasso which I remember reading and really enjoying when I was in art school. Here is some of her work. The first 2 are recent, within the last couple years. She’s 96 and still working.
