Abstract:

While the collection is primarily made up of the working drafts for Gilot's work Life with Picasso, (written in collaboration with Carlton Lake), a substantial portion is comprised of the correspondence received by Pablo Picasso during the years 1948-1951.

Series I. Works, includes the earliest corrected typescript of the first draft of Life with Picasso with corrections primarily in the hand of Carlton Lake. In addition, an untitled play that Gilot apparently wrote near the beginning of her relationship with Picasso is also present.

Gilot and Lake used the documents present in the second and third series during the writing of their book. Some of the letters have identifying notations made in the hand of Carlton Lake. Several of them were recorded verbatim in Life with Picasso, while others demonstrate Gilot's restraint in what she revealed in the book.

Series II. is represented by one folder of correspondence to Gilot from the art dealers Louise Leiris and Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler. These letters document Gilot's personal relationship with the dealers, as well as the preparations for her 1952 one-woman exhibition at the Galerie Louise Leiris.

The third series is devoted primarily to correspondence written to Pablo Picasso during the years 1944-1952. These were artistically rich years for Picasso, when he began to experiment with lithography and ceramics, and the letters from his secretary Jaime Sabartés partially record this process. In addition, Picasso's relations with various Communist organizations, as well as his 1948 trip to Poland, are documented by the letters of several correspondents--notably those from Paul Eluard.

Picasso's personal life is reflected in the letters written to him by his children Paul and Maya, by his first wife Olga, and his companions Marie-Thérèse Walter, Dora Maar, Geneviève Laporte, and Françoise Gilot. In addition, several family photos may be found in the correspondence of Marie-Thérèse Walter.
