Description

Pablo Ruiz Picasso (1881-1973) was the most prolific artist in the history of Western art, producing over two thousand oil paintings, as well as sculptures, ceramics, collages, prints, photographs, drawings and jewellery designs. Drawing extensively on recent research, this book provides an overview of the full range of Picasso’s art and career.

In a unique approach it examines Picasso’s relationship to the central themes of poetry, war, the ‘disfigurement’ of the human form, play, and the figure of the artist. Both an ideal introduction for those coming fresh to Picasso’s work and a source of new insights for those already familiar with his career, this accessible book is one of the most significant additions to Picasso literature in recent years.
