Jacqueline au Chapeau à Fleurs

Picasso and Jacqueline Roque met in 1953, when he was 72 and she was 27. He brought her a single rose each day for six months until she finally agreed to date him. Picasso saw a resemblance between Jacqueline and the woman with the hookah in Eugène Delacroix’s The Women of Algiers that he found inspiring. In 1955, Picasso’s first wife Olga Koklova died, and he married Jacqueline in Vallauris in March 1961. Depicted in profile, here Jacqueline crouches with an elongated neck and sharpened facial features. She is depicted similarly in later portraits, such as the “Odalisques” series.
