Life with Picasso.
New York: McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1964. - Octavo. 373pp. Cloth. With the dustwrapper. With photographs. Presentation copy to Dr. John and Muriel Halick of Greenville, Michigan, with a beautiful portrait in ink on the half-title, dated Oct. 28, 1968. It is very possible that the portrait is of Muriel Halick, though I cannot attest to the veracity of this statement. Additionally, there are two photographs of Françoise Gilot tipped in. One shows her seated, working on some sort of easel, and the other shows her in front of a quasi-finished work, with a colored pen (?) in her hand, and dated Nov. 1968. Finally, there is a box of paints that she used when she was at the Halick's, with the word "Gilot" written on the upper cover. A large number of the paints, brush, cloth, etc. is still in it. The area where she mixed the colors is almost like a painting by Gilot. As for the Halick's, I quote from the Dec 15, 2014 Sotheby's Catalogue Sale of Modern Art: " is the result of a long-standing friendship between Dr. John and Muriel Halick of Greenville, Michigan and the artist. A well respected medical physician and founding member of the Mid-Michigan Mental Health program, Dr. Halick and his wife were committed to the development of science, education and the arts, and sought to assist Gilot in promoting her artistic career in America. Numerous letters document the development of this friendship and detail the many times that Françoise visited the Halick's home in Greenville. Beginning in the the late 60s through early 70s, Dr. Halick sponsored a series of gallery shows, lectures and exhibitions of Gilot's work. The artist recalls these times fondly [in a letter dated December 12, n.d., and addressed to the Halick's], writing: "I think of you both, and all the kindness that you had for me, and it is impossible to thank you enough for all that you did for me."
