Aïka Sapone is the daughter of Michele Sapone, Picasso’s tailor. Aïka regularly attended La Californie (Picasso's villa-studio in Cannes),often finding himself playing with Claude and Paloma, the children Picasso had had by Françoise Gilot.

… at the end of the afternoon, when the sun sets over the hills of the coast, Sapone’s red Dauphine reappears on the Californie driveway.

- Was Aïka good? – Michele Sapone question to Picasso

- Very good. Someday I will make a portrait of her …

Aïka’s face is of great interest to Picasso. His marked eyebrows, the oval line of the eyes that connects to the Egyptian nose, the bangs that delimits the forehead like a helmet and that continues in profile in one long ponytail with the hairline always held very high ….

from “Il Sarto di Picasso” by Luca Masia
