133 illustrations including 48 color plates. Reissued in an appealing new format, this beautifully illustrated book once again celebrates the genius of Pablo Picasso. He died in 1973 at the age of 91. But his fame and importance continue to grow. In 1979 and 1980 major museums in Europe and America mounted the largest collections of Picasso's works ever exhibited, attracting vast throngs of new followers....This book is neither a compendious study, nor a brief survey. With its text, picture commentaries, and lavish illustrations in color and in black and white, the reader will find his way to an introductory view or a concentrated review—depending on his previous knowledge of the master's career—of the full sweep of Picasso's phenomenal diversity and abundance....Paintings, sculptures, ceramics, graphic art of many kinds; Blue Period, Cubism, Surrealism—one can easily become bewildered among these many facets of Picasso's art. Yet with this text and these illustrations we begin to recognize a man of our own time, a warm, suffering, triumphant, intimate, formidable human being, prodigiously gifted but not unknowable. Picasso is more than a legend; as this century's greatest artist, his works are ours to discover, to admire, and to make our own. This book seeks to guide the reader to this privileged goal. [From dust jacket] This Heavy Doubleday & Co. Hardback is in Good condition.
