Note: We have seen a signed photograph by Andre Villers entitled “Picasso en Popeye” which shows a humorous depiction of the artist dressed up as Popeye the Sailor Man with his fancy hat and beard. It is a very well known work. In the background, middle right, it can be seen that a copy of our lithograph, unframed, is hanging on the wall.
