Robert Frank, Andrea, 1955


Robert Picault, Femme aux bras levés avec Frédéric Rossif, 1950

Picault was one of the ceramicists Picasso worked with around Vallauris, France in the 1950s. From this collection of photographs, it seems along with vases and serving plates, Picault was documenting the period with his Rolleiflex. Along with Picasso’s work in the studio, there’s a series of small dioramas Picasso created for a film. There are scenes of long outdoor lunches with wine, conversation and Picasso sketching on various parts of his lunch companions.
