One of the most important figures in global modernism, Cuban artist Wifredo Lam (1902 1982) traveled extensively in Europe in the 1930s, where he intersected with many of the 20th century s greatest artists, most significantly Picasso. He returned to Cuba in 1942, where he nurtured his personal connection to Afro-Cuban iconography and spirit, combining modernism with the vitality and force of the native culture. Initially viewed as dangerously savage, his work is now recognized as essential viewing among his contemporaries. A major retrospective at Tate Modern showcases his singular career from the 1930s to the 1970s, with particular focus on his first encounter with Picasso in 1938 to his return to Europe in 1952. Dazzlingly illustrated with more than 300 works, including paintings, drawings and photographs, this beautiful book celebrates the life and creative contribution of a remarkable artist."

From the Back Cover:

Wifredo Lam (1902-82) is one of the most important figures in global modernism. Born in Cuba, he travelled extensively in Europe in the 1930s where he was inspired by (and knew personally) many of the 20th century's greatest artists, most significantly Picasso. Lam is now recognised as an artist who made a lasting contribution to international modern art.
A selection of esteemed contributors explore Lam's prolific six-decade career, from his encounter with cubism and surrealism in Paris to the post-war circles he worked within in Havana. An anthology of key writings on Lam and a fully illustrated biography enrich this vital survey of his life and work.
Dazzlingly illustrated with over 300 works, including paintings, drawings and photographs, this beautiful book serves to introduce newcomers to Lam, as well as deepen the understanding of those already familiar with his work.
