There are many portraits of Picasso existing as he loved to be photographed. In 1957, Roland Penrose wrote „that the life of Picasso, both private and public, has been the most fascinating of all artist in our time“. I truly believe, this did not change after more than 50 years. The photograph shown here is a small and very different insights in Picasso´s life.
I want to add as well the book, where the photo has been published. I bought this book a bit later at an antiquarian book dealer because I think it adds to the collection or history of the piece.
