David Douglas Duncan, Cannes, France, 1956

Pablo Picasso
A 17 year friendship began in 1956 when Picasso invited Duncan to spend a couple of months at his Riviera villa. Not long after, Picasso asked Duncan if he wanted to meet some of his “friends” and led him into a room brimming with paintings. Over the course of their relationship, Duncan took more than 10,000 photographs of the towering artist, whom he called “a great Spanish gentleman. A guy I respected, I loved.”
