Published to accompany the exhibition at the British Museum in 2012 with a preface from Neil MacGregor, this remarkable book explores Picasso's most important group of etchings, the Vollard Suite. Created between 1930 and 1937, a period in which the artist became immersed in sculpture, the suite reveals key themes - the classical world, its sculpture and myths - as topics which preoccupied Picasso and influenced much of his work. The etchings are presented together with sculptural objects from the British Museum's unique collection, as well as documentary photographs of the artist, his lover and model Marie-Thérèse Walter, and the greatest avant-garde Paris art dealer and print publisher of his day, Ambroise Vollard, from whom the suite takes its name. This is the first substantial publication of Picasso's Vollard Suite in over thirty years, stunningly reproduced from specially commissioned new photography.

Review:

"...a beautifully produced, fully illustrated catalogue. Coppel's introduction, appropriately titled 'Into the Labyrinth: Picasso's Vollard Suite', offers a lucid account of the history of the production of the 100 plates that came to be known as the Vollard suite". - Alexandra Parigoris, Print Quarterly

The prints are beautifully reproduced, and their key themes the artist s burgeoning interest in sculptural forms and the classical world discussed. This is the first major reassessment of this seminal series since Picasso s death. --Appolo - The International Art Magazine
