Picasso's last surviving muse

In the summer of 1954, Sylvette David met Pablo Picasso. She became the inspiration for a series of paintings, and is his last surviving muse. In this short film, Sylvette - who has since changed her name to Lydia Corbett and become an artist in her own right - looks back on the time she spent with the great painter.
