Picasso : an intimate portrait

Widmaier Picasso, Olivier2018
This new biography paints a riveting portrait of Pablo Picasso, examining both his strengths and shortcomings as husband, lover and father. Olivier Widmaier Picasso's unique insight into the life of one of the twentieth century's most influential artists, details not only Picasso's hopes, fears and regrets, but also his certainties and commitments, his unique audacity, his happiness and his conflicts. An exceptional and remarkable document, 'Picasso: An Intimate Portrait;' is an intimate study of a lifetime dedicated entirely to art, in which the author skilfully captures the real man at the heart of the many fictions and legends that the artist both inspired and incited. This masterful text is illustrated with a wealth of drawings, engravings, paintings and sculptures, as well as many rarely seen and personal photographs by David Douglas Duncan, Edward Quinn, Andre Villers, Lucien Clergue, Man Ray, Michel Sima and Robert Capa among others.
