Great Men and their Ballerinas

The image “'Olga.%201921.%20127%20x%2096.5%20cm.%20Pastel%20&%20charc.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Portrait d'Olga, 1921. Pastel and charcoal.

I'm reading the third volume of John Richardson's overwhelming A Life of Picasso, and an odd coincidence struck me--both Picasso and John Maynard Keynes married ballerinas from the Ballets Russes (Olga Khokhlova and Lydia Lopokova respectively).
