Already published in France, Spain, and Germany to wide acclaim, this book presents an insider's portrait of Pablo Picasso, the women in his life, and the Picasso family. The author, Picasso's grandson Olivier Widmaier Picasso, spoke extensively with relatives, friends, and contemporaries of the artist, and discovered unknown information about Picasso's life. Correcting previous portrayals of the artist which have been highly critical of his personal relationships and treatment of women, this book offers a balanced and sensitive account of his life. Olivier Widmaier Picasso - whose grandmother was the artist's muse and lover Marie-Therese - answers allegations about everything from the artist's sexuality and relation to money and politics, to the feuding over his estate, and the author's own handling of the artist's legacy. This compassionate, penetrating biography, which includes never before published family photographs, offers a unique perspective as it explores both sides of the coin that is fame and talent.
