    Picasso was reportedly attracted by her bloody fingers after she cut herself playing the knife game (aka five-finger fillet).
    Her relationship with Picasso overshadowed her own work.
    She wrestled over Picasso with his other mistress, Marie-Therese Walter, in his studio.
    She persuaded Picasso to join the French Communist Party (1944).
    After Picasso broke off their relationship, she became increasingly depressed and reclusive.
    She had made a name for herself in the surrealist movement as a photographer before meeting Picasso.
    She studied photography with Man Ray.
    She took a series of photos documenting Picasso's creation of the painting 'Guernica' (1937).
    Picasso's painting 'Dora Maar with Cat' sold at auction for $95 million (2006).
