Fernande Olivier, Pablo Picasso and their friends – an exhibition.

Fernande Olivier and Pablo Picasso had a pretty intense relationship. They met in Paris around 1904, when Picasso was starting to make a name for himself. Fernande was an artist’s model and had this captivating, bohemian vibe that really drew Picasso in.

They moved in together and their life was full of passionate highs and dramatic lows. Fernande became Picasso’s muse and appeared in many of his early works, especially during his “Rose Period,” where his paintings were more romantic and full of color.

Their relationship wasn’t easy. They had fiery personalities and often clashed. Picasso could be very controlling and jealous, while Fernande had her own strong will and desires. Despite this, their time together was incredibly influential for Picasso’s art. He created some of his most important early works while they were together. In 1912, they broke up, but the influence of Fernande on the work of Picasso can clearly be seen. And yes, that is much of what this exhibition in the Picasso Museum in Barcelona is about.
