Eva Gouel and Picasso
Eva Gouel and Picasso (1912-1915)
Fernande left Picasso in 1912, months after Picasso took an interest in Marcelle Humbert, known as EvaGouel (1885-1915). Picasso was devastated by her early death due to tuberculosis or cancer in 1915. Picasso professed his love to Eva by painting “I Love Eva” in some of his paintings.
Still, during Eva’s sickness Picasso managed a relationship with Gaby Lespinasse. (Picasso’s father died in May, 1913 at the time that Eva moved in with him.)
