Lot 0121: FRENCH PORTRAIT OIL PAINTING BY FRANCOISE GILOT

41 reviews

Francoise Gilot, American, French, 1921 to 2023, oil painting on canvas depicting a Cubist portrait. Signed lower right. Framed. Francoise Gilot is a French painter of the Post World War II School. Gilot was an accomplished artist, notably in watercolors and ceramics, and a bestselling memoirist of the book Life with Picasso. At the age of 21 she met Pablo Picasso, and the two embarked on a ten year relationship. Gilot is considered by some to have been his muse, and though her work during this time was influenced by Picassos Cubism, her paintings are characterized by a preference for organic forms over Picassos use of sharp angles. One of a kind artwork.

Overall good vintage condition. Signs of age and wear. Refer to photos. Sold As Is.
Frame 20 3/4 x 13 1/2 in. Image 19 1/2 x 12 1/4 in. All measurements are approximate.
