Jacqueline Roque (February 24, 1927 – October 15, 1986) was born in Paris on February
24, 1927. She is best known as the muse and second wife of Pablo Picasso. Their marriage
lasted 20 years until his death, during which time he created more than 400 portraits of her
Born  in Paris, she was only two when her father abandoned her mother and her four-year-old
Picasso met Jacqueline in 1953 at the pottery when she was 27 years old. He romanced her by
drawing a dove on her house in chalk and bringing her one rose a day until she agreed to date
in six months later. In 1955, when Picasso's first wife Olga Koklova died, he was free to marry.
They married in Vallauris on 2 March 1961.

Roque's image began to appear in Picasso's paintings in May 1954. These portraits are
characterized by an exaggerated neck and feline face, distortions of Roque's features. Eventually
her dark eyes and eyebrows, high cheekbones, and classical profile would become familiar
symbols in his late paintings.It is likely that Picasso's series of paintings derived from
Eugène Delacroix's The Women of Algiers was inspired by Roque's beauty; the artist c
commented that "Delacroix had already met Jacqueline." In 1955 he drew Jacqueline as
Lola de Valence", a reference to Edouard Manet's painting of the Spanish dancer. In 1963
he painted her portrait 160 times, and continued to paint her, in increasingly abstracted forms, until 1972.

My painting, "Jacqueline's Boudoir" is based on my impression
of Jacqueline with Folded Arms by Pablo Picasso
