Description

Rare oversized photograph presented by Picasso to his trusted housekeeper

Rare oversized vintage matte-finish 9.25 x 11.75 photo of Pablo Picasso with his wife and muse Jacqueline Roque, boldly signed and inscribed in black felt tip to their beloved housekeeper Ines Sassire, "Pour Ines, Picasso, 17.6.67" and "et Jacqueline.” Reverse bears a Photo France-Soir credit stamp. In very fine condition.

Picasso met Ines Sassier while vacationing in Mougins in 1936 and, delighted by her charm, promptly welcomed both her and her sister to the staff at his Rue de Boétie apartment. She remained Picasso's close friend, advisor, cook, and confidante for more than three decades. A rare oversized pose of the smiling artist, enhanced by its great associations.
