Description

Choice photograph of Picasso with rare, lengthy inscription to his best friend, the sculptor Jaime Sabartes

Vintage matte-finish 7 x 9.25 photo of Picasso bundled up for chilly weather, signed and inscribed in fountain pen to his best friend, the Spanish sculptor and writer Jaime Sabartes, "Para Jaime Sabartes, esta fotografia hecha en Tolosa en donde estuvimos juntos este invierno, Picasso, 1946.” Reverse bears a "Photo Boix, J.S.U." credit stamp. In very fine condition.

Picasso first met Sabartes in 1899 when they were both just eighteen years old and began a lifelong friendship. Sabartes initiated the establishment of the Museu Picasso in Barcelona with the donation of his personal collection, which consisted of nearly six hundred of Picasso's works. A beautiful and very significant photo with a superb association.
