Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Originally published in 1964 and reissued in a revised edition in 1982, this work gathers together 133 illustrations (48 full-color plates) along with background text on each work. If you had to pass on the earlier $50 edition, jump at this $20 version, which offers the same top quality at a bargain price.

" Nothing can be accomplished without solitude; I have made a kind of solitude for myself" This quote from the artist himself is how he became the center of the art world in the twentieth century. Everything was compared to Picasso and he always seemed a step ahead of many artists . The beginning of the book is somewhat of a biography of his life. Many black and white sketches and paintings and styles he developed and it is an easy read. This section is around 50 pages and then comes the beautiful color plates. On one page is the explanation of the work and then opposite of that page is a luscious full page color plate, there are some 30 color plates and they express his work in order of his life, and shows some of his most famous works. It is another book to collect on Picasso.

Format: Hardcover
This book superbly portrays Picasso as a man: his joie de vivre his love of women, his love of life, his guttural grasping at the meaning of life, love and beauty in its modern, cruel guise. Throughout the author refers to to real people: people who exist - people like you, and people like me: people who go down to the mall, people who eat ham and cheese baguettes, people who delve into the deeper things.... the ntherworld of life: love: the internet: humour; bullfighting, his mother his love , his daughter.
