Humor, adulation, tenderness, passion and complexity---the qualities of a love affair---unfold in “Picasso and Francoise Gilot: Paris-Vallauris, 1943-1953,” on view now through June 20 at New York's Gagosian Gallery.

Paintings, sculpture, drawings, and ceramic plates tell the story of Picasso's romance with Francoise Gilot (born 1921); his muse and mistress was forty years younger and the mother of his two children, Claude and Paloma. Their ten-year relationship coincided with a transformative artistic period for Picasso.

Comprising about 180 works, it is the fourth show in a series organized by Picasso biographer John Richardson for the gallery.
