Fernande Olivier french model and artist, was the first lengthy relationship
by Picasso, from 1904 to 1912. Together, they led a bohemian life in extreme economic hardship, making use of opium and other substances. Fernande was
a woman of refined tastes, loved perfumes, clothes and jewelry. Posed for many artists of the time, but once entered into relationship with the painter, he forbade her to lend her image to others. Fernande enjoyed acting in the role of women or the subject of Oriental odalisque, but over the years he got tired of that game because of jealousy and in some cases of violence. After their separation Fer- nande published some memories that infuriated Picasso. She died alone and poor in 1966. In 1988, many years after the death of both, the book Loving Picasso was finally published.
