Post Lot Text
The prints offered in this and the following two lots were used for the Czech edition of Conversation avec Picasso.
Conversation avec Picasso, originally published by Brassaï in 1964, is a collection of candid anecdotes of his regular visits with Picasso, whose work he photographed from 1932 to 1962. Brassaï and Picasso met in 1932 through the publisher Tériade, who had commissioned a series of photographs of the rue La Boétie studio and of recent plaster sculptures done by Picasso at Boisgeloup, for the first issue of the Review Minotaure. Later on, between 1943 and 1946, Brassaï photographed Picasso's entire sculpted work for Les Sculptures de Picasso, published by Chêne in 1949.
