While not exclusively gay, he admitted to having a number of gay relationships. Yes, he was married to a woman; but that is not proof of anything, either.

It is clear from his paintings and his writings that he was very much in love with his wife, Gala.

Still, just because he was in love with his wife, doesn't mean he wasn't gay. Because gay men can love women, and will marry them to hide behind, when they are fearful enough of their true nature.
