MICHEL SIMA

FRANÇOISE GILOT AND PABLO PICASSO THROUGH MICHEL SIMA’S LENS

In the early 1930s, Polish-born sculptor and photographer Michel Sima came to Paris to attend classes at the Grande Chaumière. He befriended many Montparnasse artists, including Picasso. Sima was the privileged witness to his life in the South of France with Françoise Gilot and their children. These are some of the outstanding pictures that will complement the Françoise Gilot exhibition.

Accessible upon presentation of the Rencontres d'Arles 2021 pass.
