cambridge / gilot / picasso / polio / salk

What do Pablo Picasso and Jonas Salk have in common?

Apart from revolutionizing the respective fields these two gentlemen worked in: Françoise Gilot. 

Gilot met Picasso when he was an old man, had two children with him and after a 9 year relationship she became one of the few women who would dump him. Yes, Pablo Picasso was dumped. 
And she’s no idiot – she went to Cambridge! 

After marrying and divorcing someone else, Gilot eventually met and married Jonas Salk in Paris – Salk – of the whole polio fame – was pretty old back then as well. Do we see a trend?
The coolest part? Gilot lives in NYC and Paris and she’s a painter.
