previous / index / next

Pablo Picasso, standing slightly behind and to the side of Jacqueline, holds a paper tie he has made up to the front of her shirt.

"Guests arriving at La Californie (those fortunate few of the day, or week, or even month when the gates opened to outsiders) were welcomed by [Picasso], a host who was perhaps the best known man on earth, certainly its most influential artist, who often garbed the visitor (and Jacqueline, too) with gifts of his own creation . . . " Goodbye Picasso, p. 43.
