Event #4: Françoise Gilot (French, b. 1921)
Françoise Gilot has had an extraordinary life. Her relationship with Pablo Picasso and friendship with many of his great contemporaries, like Matisse and Braque, later was followed by her long marriage to Dr. Jonas Salk. Surrounded by such geniuses, she has maintained her independence and
distinct personality in both painting and writing, developing her own unique style. Gilot’s beauty, intelligence, humor, and artistic talent has set a high standard that has been an inspiration to others. In her long and distinguished career, she has been a bridge between the heroic period of the School of Paris and the emergence of New York City as the new world center for contemporary art.
