Picasso and portraiture : representation and transformation by Pablo Picasso( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Portraiture has managed to flourish in modern painting in spite of the popularization of photography, the decline of traditional patronage, and modernism's increasing emphasis on abstraction. However problematic modern styles have been for representational art, painters have continued to discover new possibilities in the imaging of the human face. This book explores the challenge of the modernist portrait through the multiple solutions proposed by its foremost protagonist and, in so doing, becomes the first volume ever published on the subject of Picasso and portraiture. The hundreds of works reproduced here - most of them unfamiliar, some virtually unknown - demonstrate the remarkable range of Picasso's experimentation in all its stylistic and psychological diversity." "The book opens with an authoritative, broad-ranging essay by William Rubin; the nine essays that follow - all by major contemporary scholars and critics - examine different periods and aspects of Picasso's career and clarify personal relationships between the artist and his subjects. It closes with an essay by Mr. Rubin on the late portraits. Numerous photographs, some never before published and many by outstanding photographers, present the portrait subjects as seen through the eye of the camera." "This book, published to accompany a major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, opening in April 1996, no doubt will long remain the definitive work on its subject."--Jacket

Bacon Picasso : the life of images by Anne Baldassari( Book )

16 editions published in 2005 in French and English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francis Bacon's dedication to the medium of painting was the direct result of his multifaceted relationship with the art of Pablo Picasso. After viewing an exhibition on Picasso in 1927 at the Calerie Paul Rosenberg in Paris, Bacon developed an obsession with Picasso's art that would continually manifest itself in his own oeuvre." "This groundbreaking study examines Picasso's versatile influence on the work of Bacon through four common themes: the crucifixion, the embrace, the the sereum, and the studio self-portrait. The volume's stunning side-by-side presentation of the two artists' compositions which assembles and assesses material from prestigious international collections and from Bacon's previously unpublished archives dedicated to Picasso - demonstrates the English painter's often dramatic appropriation of Picasso's work into his own art."--Jacket
Cubist Picasso : Paris, Musée national Picasso, 19 Septembre 2007-7 Janvier 2008 by Pablo Picasso( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""You can paint with whatever you like, with pipes, postage stamps, postcards or playing cards, candlesticks, pieces of oil-cloth, detachable collars, wallpaper, newspapers ..." This list drawn up by poet and critic Guillaume Apollinaire in his aesthetic meditations on cubist painters included almost every component of Pablo Picasso's great invention of cubism. Yet anarchy was absent from this period of the master's career despite its revolutionary impact, as demonstrated by the major retrospective conceived by the Musee National Picasso in Paris in a homage to Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, the venerable yet still potent masterpiece that celebrated its centennial in 2007." "Based on a selection of outstanding artworks, this exhibition catalogue presents an assessment of this period of radical painterly innovation and offers an international overview of recent research on the subject. The texts not only elucidate the main developmental and stylistic stages of a creative explosion that spanned the first two decades of the century (1906-24), they also shed light on the wealth and coherence of Picasso's oeuvre down through the years." "This seminal work combines quality reproductions with critical essays by the world's leading authorities on Picasso and cubism: Anne Baldassari, Pierre Daix, Pepe Karmel, Irving Lavin, Jean-Claude Lebensztejn, and Leo Steinberg."--Jacket
Picasso sculpture by Pablo Picasso( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in conjunction with the first large-scale retrospective of Picasso's sculpture in the US since The Museum of Modern Art's historic show of 1967, Picasso Sculpture is a sweeping survey of the artist's profoundly innovative and influential work in three dimensions. Over the course of his long career, Picasso devoted himself to sculpture wholeheartedly, if episodically, using both traditional and unconventional materials and techniques. Unlike painting, in which he was formally trained and through which he made his living, sculpture occupied a uniquely personal and experimental status in Picasso's oeuvre. He kept the majority of his sculptures in his private possession during his lifetime, and it was only in the late 1960s that the public became fully aware of this side of his oeuvre. -- Provided by publisher

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of critical and personal reactions to Picasso at every stage of his career provides a remarkable account of the many innovations and changes of direction which baffled his contemporaries. Picasso's working methods and his attitudes to his own art are also revealed in conversations and in letters and statements by his closest friends." "A Picasso Anthology contains a wide range and variety of contemporary responses to Picasso and his art. There are essential passages from books by his close friends, including Apollinaire, Cocteau, and Roland Penrose; there is an important body of Catalan and Spanish criticism; a remarkable collection of Russian criticism of his cubist work; and Czech, Danish, and Italian articles, as well as mainstream texts from France and Germany."--Jacket

The colors of passion Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) : The Crucifixion (February 7, 1930), Picasso Museum, Paris( Visual )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crucifixion is a rather surprising painting coming from Picasso, a man who had little interest in religion or religious themes. This program explores the reasons why he might have placed a number of strange, indecipherable figures within this classical representation of Calvary. Many allusions found in the work's enigmatic composition seem to indicate that the painting may have been created during a personal crisis
