The inspiration for this painting was a quote from the book Life with Picasso, written by Françoise Gilot and Carlton Lake, in which Picasso tells Françoise his choicest memories. While painting Guernica, May/June 1937, Picasso is affectionately assisted by Dora Marr, when Marie-Thérèse Walters, Picasso’s live-in girlfriend and mother of his child Maya drops in. Angered by the scene Marie-Thérèse insists that Picasso choose between the women. He stops painting for a moment, and unable to come to a decision says, I like you both; you two fight it out.
