NYC: Gagosian Gallery – Madison Avenue - Picasso and Françoise Gilot: Paris–Vallauris, 1943–1953 Exhibition. At the Gagosian Gallery, Madison Avenue, until June 30 the Picasso and Françoise Gilot: Paris–Vallauris 1943–1953 exhibition. It is the fourth major exhibition in an ongoing series on the life and work of Pablo Picasso and it is conceived as a visual and conceptual dialogue between the art of Picasso and the art of Françoise Gilot, his young muse and lover during the period 1943–53. The exhibition is a result of an active collaboration between Gilot and Picasso’s biographer John Richardson, assisted by Gagosian director Valentina Castellani.
Gagosian Gallery – Picasso and Françoise Gilot: Paris–Vallauris, 1943–1953 Exhibition. “Picasso and Françoise Gilot” celebrates the full breadth and energy of Picasso’s innovations during these post-war years, as well as presenting Gilot’s paintings alongside his marvelously innovative depictions of her and their family life. It is the first time that their work has been exhibited together—that the painterly dialogue between the fascinated mature male artist and the self-possessed young female artist can be retraced and explored.
