As he appears in the text:

“The poet Paul Éluard introduced Dora Maar to Pablo while she was working as a set photographer for Jean Renoir. Pablo was technically married and had recently fathered a daughter with one of his mistresses, but he was, predictably, shaken by the twenty-eight-year-old’s intelligence and beauty. In the café where they met, she was stabbing a penknife between her spread fingers when she apparently missed and drew blood, staining a pair of gloves. Pablo asked to keep them.”
