Photo of Pablo Picasso

Andre Villers

I acquired this photograph in 2012 from an auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. When I contacted the photographer, Andre Villers, he kindly sent me detailed information about this photograph, down to the type of paper it is printed on.

Andre first met Picasso in 1952 and went on to photograph many famous artists. His tuberculosis has prevented him from traveling, but luckily the South of France has attracted many artists to photograph.

Although Andre’s illness prevents him from coming to the United States, I hope to visit him in the City of Mougins, France in the near future and to bring his amazing exhibition of images of Pablo Picasso to be displayed in the United States.
