Richard Avedon 1958 Picasso Photograph

Pablo Picasso captured by Richard Avedon in April of 1958.
One of only two edition prints in existence.

My photographs don’t go below the surface. They don’t go below anything. They’re readings of the surface. I have great faith in surfaces. A good one is full of clues. But whenever I become absorbed in the beauty of a face, in the excellence of a single feature, I feel I’ve lost what’s really there…” Richard Avedon, 1980
