inspired by this post by lauren about francoise gilot i decided to do some vintage picasso hunting – and of course the life archives delivered. picasso lived in the town of vallauris on the french riviera for 7 years where he created ceramics at the madoura workshop (amongst other things of course – the man was nothing if not prolific). francoise is pictured in this series of photographs taken in 1949 by gjon mili, though she eventually left picasso after a myriad of infidelities.

  1. The number of topless photos makes me happy for some reason – maybe when I’m that old and famous, I won’t worry about wearing a shirt either?

  2. Oh, these are truly magical. I love the double exposures. I feel like I know him a bit looking at these….?! and the light exposures are pretty pretty amazing.

  3. A huge picasso exhibit was just touring the US and I was lucky enough to live across from it in Richmond and got to go multiple times (thanks VMFA membership!)
