Discover the motifs, masterpieces, and driving forces behind the artist Pablo Picasso.
Picasso was arguably the most influential artist of the 20th century. Over the course of a career that spanned seven decades--and included thousands of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, drawings, prints, and tapestries--his work continued to evolve in response to his own life and to events in the world around him. This elegant introduction to Picasso offers lively artistic and biographical commentary, as well as beautiful reproductions of key works. Readers will discover why Picasso's work is often categorized by "periods" and his masterful achievements in the realms of neoclassicism, surrealism, and sculpture--in short, how his tremendous body of work reflected the development of modern art in the 20th century.
