The recreation of Picasso's first-ever museum retrospective
Recreating Picasso's first-ever museum retrospective curated by the artist himself, this book provides a unique historical and artistic perspective on a towering figure in modern art.
Pablo Picasso was a famous artist and infamous celebrity by the time he launched his first museum exhibition at the Kunsthaus Zurich in 1932. The history of that exhibition, its influence on Picasso's reception and reputation, and the impact the show had on Picasso's contemporaries and associates are all explored in this book, which features photographs from the original exhibition and will for the first time give the full catalogue of the 225 paintings included in the exhibition. Picasso curated the original retrospective, selecting works from the first three decades of his career. The works featured in the book include paintings, sculpture and prints from the artist's blue and rose periods, his foray into Cubism, his classicist period and his sensual images of the early 1930s inspired by his young lover Marie Thérèse Walter
