A Mr Bienaimé avec toute mon amitiers, la môme Piaf . Still very young, 21 years old, Piaf made two spelling mistakes in the word "friendship" (amitié).

Edith Piaf (1915 - 1963) is a monument of French culture, a legendary singer. After the war, she became internationally famous in Europe, South America and the United States.

In 1948, she met the great love of her life, boxer Marcel Cerdan, who became world boxing champion and, shortly afterwards, died in a plane crash. This great love story, targeted by the media, played a large part in its myth.

Among Piaf's biggest hits are "La vie en rose" (1946), "Milord" (1959) or "Non, je ne regrette rien" (1960). She sang "Hymne à l'amour" (1949) and "Mon Dieu" (1960, composed by Charles Dumont) in memory of Marcel.

When she autographed this photograph, Edith Piaf had just signed her first contract with the production company Polydor for the album "Les mômes de la cloche", which was a huge success. It is probably one of the artist's first autographs, an exceptional piece from the beginning of the artist's career.
