Robert Capa Photographs, Aperture, 1996, front cover and p. 150.

In the above image, taken in 1948 by renowned photographer and friend of Picasso, Robert Capa, the artist and his then-lover Françoise Gilot walk carefree along a beach in Golfe Juan, a seaside resort on Côte d'Azur.

Capa spent a lot of time with the couple and their two children while on an assignment in France. The tender portraits of the family that Capa captured over this period show a side of Picasso that we seldom see, an intimate and attentive family man. Gilot, whose impassioned but tempestuous relationship with Picasso lasted 10 years, said of the photographs of this time 'Capa was a friend, so it was not formal at all.'
