Lot 563: Vintage matte-finish 7 x 5 photo of Picasso and Jacqueline relaxing at a table, signed and inscribed on the reverse in pencil to Picasso's longtime friend and housekeeper Ines Sassier, "Pour Ines, Picasso, Cannes le 9.5.57," and "Pour la Jolie Doña Ines, Jacqueline." Reverse also bears a "Photo Delille" inkstamp. In fine condition. Picasso found in Jacqueline Roque not only his second wife, but also his greatest artistic muse. He painted over four hundred portraits of her throughout their two decades together—far more than any other subject—providing a unified, progressive body of work that wonderfully showcases his increasingly abstract style over the last years of his life.
