About this title


This is one of the "Great Modern Masters" series on 20th-century artists. This book covers the work of Pablo Picasso. Forfeiting a conventional career and scorning the artistic establishment - despte his academic training and natural talent - he fully embraced the bohemian lifestyle of the avant-garde throughout his long and productive life. In this survey, nearly 80 of his masterpieces are reproduced as well as lesser-known works, demonstrating the diversity and scope of Picasso's artistic output. Born in Malaga, Spain, he moved to Barcelona in 1895. By 1904 he was living in Paris in the legendary neighbourhood of Montmatre. He became intrigued by Iberian sculpture and African masks and incorporated their evocative imagery into his art, culminating in the famous 1907 painting, "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon". Along with the painter Georges Braque, Picasso then embarked on the artistic revolution known as Cubism, which completely altered the way the world was represented in art. He continued to test artistic boundaries, ultimately developing a highly personal expressionistic style perhaps best represented by the 1937 painting, "Guernica". After World War II, Picasso settled in the south of France where he worked until his death in 1973.
