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

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 855 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 )

8 editions published in 2005 in French and English and held by 503 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 )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 420 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 the engraver : selections from the Musée Picasso, Paris by Brigitte Baer( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In gathering this special selection from the unique collection of the Picasso Museum in Paris, Baer had in mind the basic questions of why Picasso was attracted to the art of printmaking; and what role it played in his work, his life and his fantasies. She invites the viewer to look attentively at the prints themselves as she analyzes their themes, sources, iconography and techniques." "Based on impeccable scholarship and the invaluable experience gained from personally handling these works of art for many years, Baer's documentation of this key aspect of Picasso's work provides a fresh evaluation of his genius."--Jacket

"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 )

5 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 253 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

Through the eyes of Picasso : face to face with African and Oceanic art by Pablo Picasso( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Picasso once famously - and provocatively - declared that he was not acquainted with African art. yet hundreds of archival documents and photographs - in addition to reproductions of his artworks alongside so-called "primitive" works from Africa and Oceania, as well as the Americas and Asia - illustrate how such art was a continual source of inspiration for the master artist throughout his career. Divided into three parts, this comprehensive tome explores Picasso's fascination with art from outside of Europe. A chronology - spanning from his arrival in Paris in 1900 to 1974, the year following his death - highlights the principal points of intersection between the artist and "primitive" art: where he encountered it, which pieces he collected, and the resonances found in his own creations. Each date is elucidated through facts, testimonial accounts, and photographs, as well as comments from Picasso himself. The second part examines the thematic links between Picasso's oeuvre and diverse non-European works, providing side-by-side comparisons that reveal recurrent themes - nudity, sexuality, impulses, death, and more - along with parallel artistic expressions of those themes, such as the disfiguration or destruction of the body. Essays by three authoritative authors complete the exploration, providing context and valuable insight into the influence of these works on Picasso and the lasting and meaningful bond he had with them."
