“There were five factors that determined his way of life and likewise his style: the women with whom he was in love; the poet or poets who served as his catalyst; the place where he lived; the circle of friends who provided admiration and understanding of which he never had enough; and the dog who was his inseparable companion. On occasion these factors overlapped but as a rule, when a wife or mistress changed, everything else changed.”

Dora Maar, 1980
