picasso says 'non.'
brigitte bardot visited the great picasso with hopes that he might paint her portrait. at the time pablo was occupied with his current model, a young woman who lived next door. he told bardot he focused on one model at a time. hah! i have a feeling they had a good time together anyway. of all the nice snaps taken during their meeting, this is my favorite. as one who likes to paint i know it can feel uncomfortable to have someone watching over my shoulder. either picasso did not mind or else he was being very gracious to the queen of the cote d'azur.
