OLGA KOKHLOVA 1891 – 1955 1917 – 1927 Se casan en 1918 Ella 37 / El 37
On February 4 , 1921 , Olga gave birth to a boy named Paulo (Paul). From then on, Olga and Picasso's relationship deteriorated. In 1927 , Picasso began an affair with a 17-year old French girl, Marie- Thérèse Walter . In 1935 , Olga learned of the affair from a friend, who also informed her that Walter was pregnant. Immediately, Olga took Paulo, moved to the South of France, and filed for divorce. Picasso refused to divide his property evenly with her as required by French law, so Olga stayed legally married to him until her death from cancer in Cannes, France in 1955.
Paulo, who died on June 5 , 1975 , had two children: Pablito (born on May 5 , 1949 - committed suicide on July 2 , 1973 ) and Marina (born on November 14 , 1950 ).
In 1990, Marina Picasso founded an orphanage in Thu Duc , Vietnam (a former military base). Named "The Village of Youth," it was funded by Marina’s inheritance from her grandfather, Pablo Picasso. Marina’s foundation has also organized the digging of wells in inland Vietnam, sends regular shipments of milk to orphanages and hospitals, and grants farming subsidies and scholarships.

Después de un viaje por toda España con su mujer y su hijo, en 1935 su amante Marie-Thérese tiene una niña a la que llaman Maya y Picasso se separa de Olga.
A mediados de 1936, en cambio, ya vive con Dora Maar.
In his 10-year love affair with Dora Maar, Pablo Picasso found a union that challenged and changed him intellectually and artistically, writes Gerard Vaughan.
IN JULY 1997, AT THE age of 90, Dora Maar died in Paris.
Her apartment in the Rue de Savoie, in which she had for many years maintained a reclusive existence, remained a virtual time-capsule attesting to the long trajectory of her own artistic career, and to the decade in which she shared her life with Pablo Picasso - as lover, friend, muse, agent provocateur, witness and documenter.
The story of Pablo Picasso and Dora Maar is a panoramic tale of great love played out in a theatre of relentless world tragedy - from the atrocities of the Spanish Civil War, to the horror of the Second World War and Adolf Hitler's temporary domination of Europe.
Maar was a hoarder, a fact for which we can all be grateful.
Through careful study of hundreds of precious works and documents acquired from her estate, Anne Baldassari, the director of the Musee Picasso in Paris, has been able completely to re-evaluate this crucial decade in the lives of both Maar and Picasso.
In a truly ground-breaking exhibition, staged only at the Musee Picasso and the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, her remarkable scholarship is presented to the world for the first time.
Picasso: Love & War 1935-45 offers one of those rare opportunities for a well-known artist to be reassessed through the discovery of a new body of evidence.
There are numerous accounts of how Picasso, already an art world celebrity, first met his future partner, the talented and captivatingly beautiful photographer Maar.
But most agree that their initial meeting took place in the winter of 1935-36, at the Deux Magots cafe, a bustling meeting place for artists and writers on the famed Left Bank of Paris.
In one version of the story, which over the years has acquired a semi-mythical status in its many retellings, the surrealist poet Paul Eluard simply mediated an introduction between Pablo and Dora, two close friends from within different circles of his acquaintance.
More dramatic accounts suggest that Dora herself, having set her sights upon the great Picasso, began deliberately frequenting the Deux Magots, performing a "mysterious woman" routine that would eventually ensnare the renowned artist.
In the most surreal and erotically charged tale of their first encounter, Picasso found himself fascinated by the sight of Maar playing a kind of game of Russian Roulette, with a knife that she threw repeatedly on to one of the cafe's tables, between the splayed fingers of her hand, impervious to the occasional bloody cuts incurred by a mis-throw of the blade.

In 1944 17-year old Genevieve Laporte (born in 1927) interviewed Picasso for a school newspaper. Years later in May,1951 Picasso began an affair with the then-24 year old.
The relationship started when Laporte visited the 70-year old Picasso at his studio while he was still living with Françoise Gilot.
That summer of 1951 Picasso took Laporte to St Tropez, leaving Françoise behind.
After declining Picasso's invitation to move in with him in St. Tropez, she left him in 1953 at the same time that Françoise left the artist. In 1972 she went public with the affair and stored the art that Picasso created of her in a safe.
In 2005, at age 79, the poet Laporte auctioned 20 drawings of her that Picasso created during their secret affair.
Picasso's time with Laporte has been referred to as Picasso's "tender period".

Picasso painted over 70 portraits of Jacqueline Roque in one year alone.
If my husband ever met a woman on the street who looked like one of his paintings he would faint.
His wife Jacqueline, who openly referred to Picasso as "God", sunk into a depression.
Her drinking became excessive and she started to spend her days sobbing in a darkened room or talking to his photograph.
