Andre Villers was a French photographer and artist best known for his pictures of Pablo Picasso in the south of France in the 1950s. In 1947 diagnosed with tuberculosis and hospitalized at a sanatorium in Vallauris where he stayed for eight years. During that period he was introduced to photography and started taking pictures of Vallauris and its inhabitants. He met Pablo Picasso there in March 1953 and produced many portraits of the painter, and their relationship evolved into working together, making hundreds of images based on photographic experiments. Villers photographed many great artists in the 1950s and his later work was based upon experimentation with shadows and transparencies. In 2006 Andre Villers was named a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres.
