Gala Biography (Kazan, Russia, 1894 – Portlligat, Girona, 1982)

“I label my wife: Gala, Galushka, Gradiva; Oliva, when it comes to oval model of her face together with color of her epidermis; Oliveta, diminutive for Olive; and its own delirious derivatives Oliueta, Oriueta, Buribeta, Buriueteta, Suliueta, Solibubuleta, Oliburibuleta, Ciueta, Liueta. We also call her Lionette, since when she gets mad she roars just like the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer lion”
