An introduction to the work of Picasso.The name which predominates in the development of art throughout the twentieth century, and to which many of the revolutionary changes are ascribed, is that of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). Not only was he one of the most influential artists, he was also one of the most versatile.This beautifully produced book surveys the whole range of his paintings, from the haunting works of the Blue Period, to the brute power of 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon', the lyrical sweetness of his family portraits, the revolutionary developments of Cubism and the later manifold experimentations with form and colour.Includes 85 illustrations, 50 in colour.
