Picasso's Kitchen, the companion book to a show at the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, delves, for the first time, into the relationship between Picasso and food.
The book examines individual artworks such as Picasso's interpretation of Manet's Déjeuner sur l'herbe or his playful ceramic works, while other sections visit the bohemian cafes and restaurants of Paris and Barcelona where Picasso and other avant-garde artists of the period ate and drank, through menus, photographs, prints and paintings, searching for how these places slipped into the artists' work in ways both overt and subtle. Another section draws on archival material from Picasso's writings on food.
Perfect for the art-loving cook or the foodie art lover.
