I Was Sylvette (Regular Edition)



New Book – ‘I WAS SYLVETTE’ – Lydia Corbett’s life story by her daughter Isabel Coulton

For a few months in 1954 a beautiful young girl crossed the path of the century’s greatest artist, Picasso. What followed turned into a magical episode, a wonderful stroke of good fortune, as she became the subject of his Sylvette series, over 60 portraits, drawings and sculptures, and incidentally perhaps the major source for the long-skirted, pony-tailed ‘Look of the Fifties’.
