This is a very difficult year for Picasso. In early September
Picasso meets Jacqueline and by mid-September, Françoise is angry enough at
him that she takes their two children away and finally leaves.
Picasso buys her and the children an apartment in Paris.
Meanwhile, Picasso's son Paulo becomes his new driver, firing his prior
driver who wrecked Picasso's Oldsmobile.
At the time he created this ceramic, Picasso became fixed on
Jacqueline, the hostess at Madoura pottery and a divorcée with a
four-year-old daughter, Catherine.
In America, Arthur Miller's The
Crucible was published in this year.
