The writer, Hélène Parmelin, and her husband, the painter Edouard Pignon, both militant communists, had met Picasso after the war. In 1952 Picasso invited the couple to come to Vallauris and live in a part of the old perfume factory where he did his pottery work. Hélène Parmelin published her first essay on Picasso in 1959 (Picasso sur la Place, Editions Julliard). In 1964, 1965 and 1966, Charles Feld (Cercle d’Art) published Secrets d’alcôve d’un atelier, a series of three books of which this is the second.
