Cubism in Underwear, With Dog

Thanks to Emily for passing along this online collection of great Picasso photographs, taken by David Douglas Duncan.

The portrait of Picasso seated in the rocking chair was on the walls of my college dorm room and first apartment, and is still in a drawer somewhere in my studio. And Duncan's Picasso Paints a Portrait has long been one of my favorite books showing an artist's process. It was a great pleasure revisiting these and seeing photos from this session that I'd never seen before.
