Picasso's Sculpture Studio at Gisors

Albert Eugene Gallatin (American, 1881–1952)
In 1932, Picasso established a sculpture workshop in the stables of the Château du Boisgeloup at Gisors, situated about forty-five miles northwest of Paris. When Albert Eugene Gallatin visited him there the following summer, the Spanish artist was working on a series of sculptured heads of women that were modeled after his lover, Marie-Thérèse Walter. Gallatin's remarkable photographs capture the special light and atmosphere of the Gisors studio, where Picasso made some of his greatest sculptures. He clearly enjoyed Gallatin's visits to his studios in Paris and Gisors in the early 1930s, which often resulted in the sale of some of his important works of art.
