A rare look at the exceptional works on paper from private collections by the master of modern art

Picasso:  Seven  Decades  of  Drawing surveys  Pablo Picasso’s  prodigious  career  as  a  draftsman,  including over  40  examples  on  loan  from  private  collections spanning nearly 70 years of the artist’s long and celebrated career. The book showcases drawings in a wide range of media, from works in charcoal and crayon to coloured pencil, collage or papiers collés, graphite, gouache, ink, pastel, and watercolour. Some of the drawings on loan are rarely on view and they provide insight into the evolution of his iconic paintings, such as Les Demoiselles d'Avignon and Guernica, while others stand alone as virtuoso, independent works, highlighting Picasso's mastery of line, form, and medium.

The book ultimately examines how drawing serves as the vital thread connecting all of Picasso's art.
