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

25 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 983 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 )

26 editions published in 2005 in 4 languages and held by 609 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
The surrealist Picasso by Pablo Picasso( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume - the first reference book devoted to the surrealist work of the artist - analyses Picasso's creative activity during and alongside the surrealist movement. Thematic texts reveal the extraordinary wealth of Picasso's oeuvre during this time, and a dictionary of poetic imagery explores the various possibilities of meaning in his writing. Finally, a detailed chronology places this crucial period within its intellectual and historical context."--Jacket
Cubist Picasso : Paris, Musée national Picasso, 19 Septembre 2007-7 Janvier 2008 by Pablo Picasso( Book )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 457 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

6 editions published in 2002 in French and English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation. Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso have long been seen as the twin giants of modern art, as polar opposites but also as complementary figures. Between them they are the originators of many of the most significant innovations of 20th-century painting and sculpture, but their relationship has rarely been explored in all of its closeness and complexity. In spite of their initial rivalry, the two masters eventually acknowledged one another as equals, becoming, in their old age, increasingly important to one another both artistically and personally. From the time of their initial encounters in 1906 in Gertrude and Leo Stein's Paris studio until 1917, they individually produced some of the greatest art of the 20th century and maintained an openly competitive relationship brimming with intense innovation. Matisse Picasso presents the artists' oeuvres in groupings that reveal the affinities but also the extreme contrasts of their artistic visions. Published to accompany the landmark exhibition (a joint effort of The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Tate Modern, London; the Reunion des musees nationaux/Musee Picasso, and the Musee national d'art moderne/Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris), Matisse Picasso is the first major examination of the fascinating relationships between their art, their careers, and their lives. Thirty-four essays, each by a member of the exhibition's curatorial team, focus on a particular moment in the artists' evolving relationship. These texts are accompanied by an introductory history, commentary on the public perception of important artistic relationships, and an extensive chronology
