Olga Khokhlova

Picasso really believed her to be his love forever. The evidence was a marriage settlement where all his paintings were to be divided equally between them. Having settled in Paris Olga furnished the house in a glamorous and luxurious manner, in the high of fashion. They had a car with a driver, an art studio that occupied the entire second floor, highbred dogs; they threw receptions, dinner parties and social functions. Olga liked expensive clothes, caviar and champagne. Pablo also was not averse to ordering a suit at a high-end couturier. He had golden watch in a vest pocket. He was proud of his wife, of her manner to behave in a high society, of her unconventional beauty and fine demeanor, and humored her in her wish to live in grand style.

Portraits of that time are easy to recognize. There are serious eyes and a perfectly straight nose. Restraint and tenseness as if she were still wearing that heavy cubic costume designed by Picasso for Diaghilev’s Parade ballet. Thirty-year-old Olga gave birth to their son Paulo, when her husband was forty. It was the happiest period of their family life. Pablo created a lot of sentimental portraits of Olga and little Paul dressed as a harlequin, in a round hat, sitting on a donkey.
