From this chance meeting a great friendship grew between the two artists which was to result in numerous photographs of Picasso, his friends and his studio. Villers has held solo exhibitions all over Europ e and many of his prints are held in the permanent collections at the Picasso Museums in Paris, Barcelona, Vallauris and Antibes. He has worked closely with the writer Jacques Prevert and the photographer David Douglas Duncan. This is an iconic picture.
