ENTRTNMNT Which One of Picasso’s Girlfriends Are You the Most Like? Caitlin Fitzgibbons

Pablo Picasso’s birthday is coming up at the end of the month – October 25th, to be exact. If he was alive, he’d be 130. As an art history major in college, I wrote this paper on Picasso in my senior seminar class. Like many before me, I was fascinated by this guy’s ego and overall lifestyle.
As I read more and more about Picasso, I oddly started to develop a bit of a crush. It got me thinking: could I have been one of Pablo’s 8 main girlfriends/wives back in the day? I wasn’t sure. So I did some research and because Cosmo has taught women that they can obviously find out really genuine things about themselves through a simple fun and flirty quiz, I bring you “Which One of Picasso’s Girlfriends are You the Most Like?”:

Fernande Olivier

Are you the French artist model type? You know, just avant garde and totally cool? Your friends say you’re always attracted to the bad guys that you really want but you know are super bad for you. Are you a lazy and promiscuous, married 23-year-old looking to have an affair with another 23-year-old?  Have you tried all the tricks in the book to turn your lover on, but he’s still looking elsewhere, if you know what I mean? Sure you’re as lively, independent, sensual and red headed as Jessica on True Blood, but you’re also a totally jealous lover.

If you’re nodding your head, you might be a Fernande.


Eva Gouel

Okay, so you’ve been totally crushing on one of your close friends. You’re not the type to sit back and let your feelings go unnoticed, so you go for it. Turns out, you were right, Sherlock – he was feeling it. too. He was into your petite physique and mysterious persona. In fact, your affair is said to inspire this fairly significant movement in modern art called cubism, but like, who’s keeping score?

If you’re the type of girl looking for love in a friend,  you are a total Eva.


Olga Khokhlova

Are you an incredibly Russian 26-year-old? Can you do pirouettes around your man because you not only challenge him socially when you’re out partying, but you’re literally a ballet dancer? LOL.

Are you like, “WTF?” when your 36-year-old  husband has an affair with a 17-year-old across the street? I would hope so.

If you’re all, “This is totes me,” then you might be an Olga.


Marie-Thérèse Walter

Do you live in an apartment? Are you a blonde haired, blue eyed, rosy cheeked angel who’s just looking for love? Do you like to let married and famous artists take advantage of you because you’re only 17 and they’re 46?

Sounds like a lot of things need to line up for this to be true, but if so, you’re definitely a Marie-Thérèse.

Dora Maar
You’re the type of girl that loves to brood and frequent coffee shops and night clubs. You’re fluent in Spanish and hey, who said being bilingual was a bad thing, right? You’re a total betty and a major bad ass. You love to look good, but you’re also really into this extreme party trick called “the knife game.”

If your answer to these questions and traits is “Yeah, sue me,” you’re probably a Dora.

Françoise Gilot
You’re a total brain child when you need to be, but you can play dumb in the bedroom if you know what we mean. ;)   You’re a go-getter – you have so many talents but you just can’t decide what’s best for you. :( While you’re always tempted to run away from academics in a pursuit of your true passion – art – you know your parents would be sooo mad. You’re into famous and older men and nothing will stop you. So what your man is 61 but you’re only 21? Does love have an age?

If you’re a total scatter-brained beauty, you might be a Françoise.

Genevieve Laporte
Okay, so you’re not exactly Françoise, but you’re like almost just like her except you’re 17. You are good at everything. That’s right, a ‘Jane of all Trades’ – philanthropist, documentary filmmaker, an artist’s model, a poet and author of 16 books. Don’t worry, the guy you’re into is still 61 and a super famous artist. So chill. I mean, your love is real and no one can take that away from you – not even the skeptics who think it’s kind of sensational that you met while finding common ground over poetry during World War II.

If you’re all fired up over the one that you love, you are most definitely a Genevieve.

Jacqueline Roque
Sure, you work at a ceramics shop, but it doesn’t mean you can’t look hot doing it. You’re dark and mysterious. You’ve got a feline face that would make a kitten jealous, not to mention inspire 400 works by your man. Sure he’s old, but you marry him. You’re confident you’ve made him believe he’s found the love of his life, but who knows, he might have moved on if he hadn’t died.

If you’re all sorts of yes, you’re a Jacqueline.

Results
Like most, this quiz told me nothing about myself.  I have the general traits of a Marie-Thérèse/ocassional Eva, but I wish I was more of a Dora.  Would I actually be into Picasso? I can’t say I’d know exactly what to do if a 60yr + famous artist man tried to date me, but I’d hope I would tell him to forget it. I’m not trying to be one of Picasso’s sisterwives. He had plenty.

  1. ohmgosh. totes creepily was laughing and nodding to nearly everything Dora. minus the knife game, altho I do like the drink… lol.

  2. when chuck close came to the museum where i work, i was secretly hoping something about my face would strike him and we’d form some odd, non-sexual relationship where i’d become his muse. so yeah, i get it.

    and i also definitely would like to pretend i’m a dora maar.

    • Yeah being a muse is like the ultimate life honor. Plus, most of these women went on to write books about Picasso or sold sketches he did of them and therefore made bank. Chuck Close…epic!
