Picasso, Pablo Ruiz
(1881-1973)
   A famous Spanish painter who may have suffered from * migraine aura without headache. This suggestion is based on Picasso's paintings ofwomen's faces displaying a peculiar vertical split which is reminiscent of *illusory splitting, i.e. a visual distortion that may occur in the context of *migraine aura. In actual fact, there is no other indication that Picasso suffered from migraine.
