Pablo Picasso is widely regarded as one of the 20th century's most brilliant artists. He is also known as a notorious, and often irrepressible, lover of women. In the style of Mrs. Hemingway by Naomi Woods, Anne Girard's Madame Picasso explores the relationship between Picasso and Eva Gouel, his muse, taking us from the salon of Gertrude Stein to the glamorous Moulin Rouge in Paris. Sound interesting? We have one copy to give away this week.
When Eva Gouel moves to Paris from the countryside, she is full of ambition and dreams of stardom. Though young and inexperienced, she manages to find work as a costumer at the famous Moulin Rouge, and it is here that she first catches the attention of Pablo Picasso, a rising star in the art world.
A brilliant but eccentric artist, Picasso sets his sights on Eva, and Eva can't help but be drawn into his web. But what starts as a torrid affair soon evolves into what will become the first great love of Picasso's life.With sparkling insight and passion, Madame Picasso introduces us to a dazzling heroine, taking us from the salon of Gertrude Stein to the glamorous Moulin Rouge and inside the studio and heart of one of the most enigmatic and iconic artists of the twentieth century.
