Hadn't she already suffered enough?

NPR just posted a fascinating article about Life With Picasso, a memoir written by French painter Fran├žoise Gilot, who served as Pablo Picasso's "muse, manager, and support system" during a decade-long relationship. Apparently, while it was A-okay for Picasso to use Gilot in his work (he used her likeness in hundreds of paintings), many French intellectuals felt that she shouldn't do the same, and forty(!!!) of them actually signed a manifesto asking that her book about their years together be banned. Thankfully, that didn't pan out for them, and a new edition of her book has recently been released. Suck it, French intellectuals!
