Lydia Corbett / Sylvette David

 

Lydia Corbett, born in Paris, 1934 was famously introduced to Pablo Picasso in the 1950s. This chance encounter was a very important moment for both Picasso and for Lydia, or Sylvette David as she was then known.  For Picasso, Sylvette became the subject of large and important body of work, including more than sixty paintings, drawings and sculptures. For Sylvette, not only was her innocent, youthful beauty immortalized, but she would be remembered as a muse of the great artist – ‘The Girl with the Ponytail’. Picasso’s work and their relationship would become a constant source of inspiration for her own painting many years later.
