When the Spanish painter fell in love with the Russian dancer, the war was not yet over. It was 1917. Husky accents were loud in Paris and foreigners liked to nestle together. Pablo Picasso and Olga Khokhlova would spend ten years together and would have a son. But Picasso would refuse to divorce her until 1955 even though he got invovlved in many other flings. Gorgeous tribute to the master’s first wife at Musée Picasso till September 3.
