Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso

For Pablo Picasso, his complicated relationship with women provided inspiration for countless paintings, drawings, and sculptures. He thought women were “either goddesses or doormats”. Dora Maar, one of his lovers, called him “an extraordinary artist but morally worthless.” He once said, “Women are machines for suffering.” He had several mistresses and he demanded that they be submissive and shorter than him. One of his mistresses killed herself and two of them became emotionally traumatized and insane. He was also horrid to his wife. He once he made his ex-wife divorce her husband so she can re-marry him again, but he proceeded to marry another woman 6 years younger than her (who was already 40 years younger than Picasso), as a revenge.
