The previous owner of La Dompteuse, pied de lampe acquired the work directly from the artist. Both men were involved in the art world, moved in the same social circles and frequented the same cafés in Paris. Soon collector and artist struck a close friendship and they would meet regularly to go for walks, to the theatre or visit mutual friends. The former recalls his first encounter with Diego: How intimidated I was to meet this ‘monstrès sacrès’! It took me three years after I was reacquainted with Diego to find the courage to acquire a work from him or to ask him to create works for my home.’ Describing their relationship he said: ‘Our friendship was unique. I have never encountered the same simplicity and affection with others as I did with Diego.’
