Sylvette was a shy girl with many secrets. She dreamed of being an artist, but no one knew of her plans. One summer, the famous Picasso came to Sylvette's town, Vallauris. Amazingly, out of all the people in the town, Picasso chose her as his model. Gradually, Sylvette came to view the famous artist as a father and told him of her secret ambitions. This is the true story of Sylvette David, who modelled for Picasso in 1954. She now lives in the West of England, where she works as a painter and sculptor.
