the gardener's daughter

She was his youngest secret
He called her the gardener's daughter when those inquired
At 17, Marie-Thérèse Walter became Picasso's lover and muse
She gave birth to their daughter, Maya, at 25
They never married, and her face in the paintings was replaced by that of artist Dora Maar
Like most tragic love stories, her life ended sadly
4 years after his.

Picasso and Marie-Thérèse: L'amour fou
at the Gagosian now
