Pablo Picasso

Albert Eugene Gallatin (American, 1881–1952)
Albert Eugene Gallatin's photographic portraits document the avant-garde circles in which he traveled. Gallatin spent part of each year in Paris, where he befriended artists such as Picasso, Braque, Fernand Léger, and Joan Miró, and frequently photographed them in their studios with his Kodak camera. The affluent Gallatin often depicted his bohemian comrades as similarly refined gentlemen, as seen in this 1933 portrait of Picasso, in which the well-groomed artist poses in a suit and tie while holding a portrait of his son Paulo. These friendships also guided Gallatin's purchases of works of art, which were often acquired directly from the artists themselves.
