A book all about the women who played a prominent role in Picasso's life and art
Fernande Olivier, Olga Khokhlova Picasso, Sara Murphy, Marie-Therese Walter, Dora Maar, Francoise Gilot, Sylvette David, and Jacqueline Roque Picasso all played a prominent role in Picasso's life and art. They served as a catalyst for experiments in colour and form that would continue to change as the contours of the relationship shifted. It is through this process that Picasso's work was constantly reinvented and renewed.
Published in association with an exhibition organized in honor of the late art historian and biographer, this book features reproductions of thirty-six paintings and sculptures; an extensive two-part newspaper article by Richardson written in 1962, "Picasso in Private"; and an illustrated chronology of the extraordinary exhibitions of Picasso's work curated by Richardson at Gagosian between 2009 and 2018.
