30 Dec Picasso!


“One day in 1956, David Douglas Duncan rang the bell at the gate of La Californie, in Cannes, where Picasso lived. He explained that he would like to meet the painter and had been sent by their mutual friend Robert Capa, who had died prematurely in 1954 while covering the war in Indochina. The gate was opened and “DDD,” as he was known, discovered the painter… in the bathtub. Startled and amused, he asked Picasso if he could go get his camera from the car. That was the beginning of a long friendship that lasted up to the artist’s death.”

From Goodbye Picasso, DDD.
