The jacket is very good with some light yellowing, a 2 cm tear on the bottom edge of the front panel, and a small damp stain on the top edge of the rear panel. Boldly signed by Gilot on the ffep. From the front flap: “Gilot describes the exuberant, if exhausting, world she and Picasso new together—a world lit by the artists genius, threatened by his moods, and made glowingly alive on these pages. A gifted painter herself, Françoise Gilot not only painted with Picasso, but served as a model. Watching him work, listening to him, and learning the relation between his thoughts and his heart, she gained immense insight into his genius. She throws light on his aesthetic philosophy, his views of other great artists both past and present, and his magnificent inventiveness, not only in painting, but in sculpture, etching, lithography, and poetry.”
