This is an old Kodak colour enlargement dated 1964, showing the artist Pablo Picasso, apparently singing, as he is photographed in his studio at the Villa La Californie in Cannes, in France.

It was taken by an unknown person and sometime between June 1958 ( the creation date of the small painting in the background ) and 1961, when Picasso sold his villa in Cannes.

Picasso seems to be singing to his unidentified guests. Are they music or theatre industry related ?

Do you know who they are?




Can you help to identify the people who were visiting Picasso in his Villa La Californie, (Villa Fénelon, Villa Picasso) Cannes and tell us why they were there and when?


In David Douglas Duncan’s famous picture below taken in 1957, ‘Picasso paints while Jaquline reads’ Picasso's studio in the Villa La Californie, has the same eclectic mix of pictures and paraphernalia in the background, minus what seems to be the small painting above the mans head and angle poise lamp.
