Rear view of Picasso hanging a canvas on the wall of his studio.

Picasso hangs his latest creation, his self-portrait as an owl, on the wall of Villa La Californie, 1957. The collage consists of Duncan's photograph of Picasso's eyes, glued to a canvas, covered by a paper and charcoal owl created by Picasso.
