The Times of London covers the latest court case between Picasso’s heirs and an author who has written approvingly of the artist’s last wife, Jacqueline.
Marina Picasso is suing Pepita Dupont, an author, for claiming that her brother Pablito once tried to burgle his grandfather’s home under the influence of drugs. The case is the fourth by Picasso relatives against Dupont and the latest episode in decades of feuds and legal wrangling over the painter’s legacy.
Dupont’s The Truth About Jacqueline and Pablo Picasso challenges the “wicked stepmother” image that has clung to Jacqueline, the painter’s last wife, since she prevented Picasso’s children and grandchildren from attending his funeral in 1973.
