Pablo Picasso. Portrait of a Woman II (Jacqueline Roque) (Portrait de femme II). 1955

Pablo Picasso Portrait of a Woman II (Jacqueline Roque) (Portrait de femme II) 1955

  • Not on view

Picasso met Jacqueline Roque in 1953, when she worked in a sales position for the pottery studio where he made ceramics in the South of France. She was twenty-seven when they met; he was seventy-two. Roque moved in with Picasso in 1954; the couple married in 1961. They remained together until the artist's death, in 1973, a relationship that for Picasso endured far longer than any other.
