Jacqueline looks on as Pablo Picasso and another man move Picasso's collection of art into the new chateau.

"Cézanne, Matisse, Modigliani, Degas, Braque, Rousseau, Courbet, Renoir and others, in legions, stacked in casual familiarity along the walls, propped against tables and strewn on the floor: the new master of Vauvenargues could claim as friends some of the finest canvases painted in his two centuries. [Château de Vauvenargues, 1959.]" Goodbye Picasso, p. 97.
