Eddy Novarro was a photographer, a collector and a cosmopolitan. He dedicated his work to the great artists of the 20th century. Important painters and sculptors such as Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Hans Arp, Joseph Beuys and Robert Rauschenberg were among Novarro's friends. He photographed them repeatedly. His wife Nana Novarro was the one who made most of the appointments with the great artists for Eddy. She was a painter too, signing "Nana Novarro de Craiova". Eddy and Nana received paintings and the artists added "For Nana and Eddy" – today a respectful collection.
