In 1953 Francoise Gilot left Picasso, taking their two children, Claude and Paloma. Shortly afterwards he met Jacqueline Roque, and by 1955 they were living at La Californie, a villa just outside Cannes.

Jacqueline was the muse that resulted in hundreds of portraits of her by the artist. Her strong features and dark hair always makes her easy to identifyno matter what style in which Picasso worked.

She was also the model for characters in famous paintings which he reinterpreted. The Women of Algiers (Delacroix), Lola de Valence (Manet) and L'Arlesienne (van Gogh) to name but three.

They married in 1961 and moved into Notre Dame de Vie at Mougins, Picasso's final home. He worked there in seclusion, shielded from the world by the isolation of the house and by Jacqueline, a protective and domineering figure...A more detailed description & text in the book: Life and Works of Picasso
